Several dozen climbing trainees were caught in Tuesday morning's snowslide near the summit of Mount Draupadi ka Danda-II in the northern state of Uttarakhand.
The Indian air force and local disaster agency were assisting with rescue efforts before heavy snow and rainfall forced them to abandon the search overnight.
"Rescue teams have recovered 10 bodies," the Uttarakhand state police force said on Twitter after operations resumed in the morning.
Fourteen people have so far been rescued from the site of the avalanche, around 4,900 metres (16,000 feet) above sea level, and police said five were being treated at a district hospital in Uttarkashi.
Police footage showed several rescued climbers arriving in the town and walking unassisted while escorted by officers.
Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami confirmed on Twitter that accomplished climber Savita Kanswal, who had summitted Everest earlier this year, was among the dead.
Kanswal was an instructor with the expedition and had been feted by the climbing community for summiting the world's highest peak and nearby Makulu in just 16 days -- a women's record.
State disaster agency spokesperson Ridhim Aggarwal told AFP that the climbers had been stuck in a crevasse after the avalanche hit.
The Nehru Institute of Mountaineering said the expedition included 34 of its trainees, seven instructors and a nursing assistant.
Two air force helicopters had been sent to the region to assist with the search, senior disaster management official Devendra Singh Patwal told the media.
Vishal Ranjan, registrar with the institute confirmed the four deaths and that the rescue operation "has been stopped for now because of heavy rainfall and snowfall in the region".
