How Sahadeva Died In The Mahabharata?

At the end of their rule, Pandavas decided to retire. It was time for them to bid good bye to civilization. Sahadeva died during the final journey of Pandavas and it is mentioned in the Mahaprasthanika Parva.

Sahadeva followed his wife, Draupadi, and brothers to the great snow-clad mountains in the Himalayas. Draupadi slipped and fell as they started climbing the Himalayas. 

Sahadeva fell next.

Bhima soon realized that Sahadeva had fallen and was about die. He asked to Yudhisthira as to why Sahadeva had fallen as he had never performed any evil.

Yudhisthira told Bhima that Sahadeva had reaped the fruits of his actions. He had thought himself unparalleled in wisdom. His proud was his sin.

The brothers who had decided to give up all ties climbed the mountain leaving Sahadeva behind.

Sahadeva died soon.
