Kathmandu: Taiwanese trekker Liang Sheng Yueh has been rescued alive near Tipling village in Nepal's Dhading district, 47 days after he and his girlfriend went missing.

A high-altitude search and rescue team found 21 year old Liang in a canyon at around 2,600m near Tipling village, while the body of his companion, 19-year-old Liu Chen Chun, was lying nearby.

Liang is being treated at hospital in Kathmandu and is said to be out of danger.

He is said to have survived largely on water and salt.

Mr Liang and Ms Liu, first year students at Taiwan's National Dong Hwa University, had arrived in Nepal in February from India.

Meanwhile, Liang celebrated his 21st birthday at a hospital in the capital on Friday.

Trekking professionals have urged all the trekkers to visit mountain areas of Nepal with a guide for safe trekking.
