BBC reports that more than 1,000 people have commented on Gigi’s Facebook page with messages of tribute. 

One user wrote, “Beautiful and brave little G… thank you for letting everyone see your beautiful scenic photos.”

Another added, “Gigi, thank you for filling us all with happiness – I wish you happy travels.”

Gigideath follows the similar death of a Instagram travel blogger couple in Yosemite National Park last week. The couple, who were believed to have been intoxicated at the time, plunged 800 feet to their deaths while trying to take a photo. Meenakshi Moorthy, 30, and her husband Vishnu Viswanath, 29, died of “multiple injuries to the head, neck, chest and abdomen,” with their tripod found near the ledge where they fell. 

“It gets dark extremely fast there, especially with the time change; it is very dangerous to not travel with a headlamp or flashlight at any time,” warned Drea Rose Laguillo, a hiker who is believed to have been the last person to see the couple alive. “I personally have been stuck in the dark there about three times unexpectedly, so that is the last place you would want to be as the sun is going down.”
