A 35-year-old Israeli man was found dead in India on Wednesday. Matan lived in southern Israel's Kibbutz Kfar Aza. About a month ago, he set out on a trek in India’s Parvati Valley area.

The Israeli Foreign Affair’s Ministry is working to bring his body back to Israel for a burial. It is known that on December 2, Orgad began the hiking trip after leaving a bag in one of the guesthouses in the Kasol area. When his friends and family didn’t hear from him for a long period of time, they contacted an Israeli insurance company that sent search and rescue personnel to the area.
