Did the CIA lose a nuclear generator in the Himalayas?

According to this fascinating article, in 1965 the CIA dragged a nuclear generator to the top of a Himalayan mountain to power equipment that would observe Chinese nuclear tests.

Unfortunately the weather deteriorated and they couldn't reach the summit, so they left it anchored on the side of the mountain until the following year.

Returning the next year they found the ledge where they had secured it had broken off and the all trace of the nuclear generator had gone.

Unfortunately that means that high in the Himalayas inside a glacier are the glowing rods of plutonium with the potential to poison the Ganges.

An amazing story....
