Trash on Mount Everest

The Himalaya Mountain Ranges have the highest peak in the world, including Mount Everest with its 8,850 meters of altitude; but it is also the highest cemetery and dump.

On the white snows peaks of Everest, all kinds of garbage have acumulated: empty oxygen bottles, the remains of camps, every kind of utensil and even the bodies of those people who died in the attempt to crown the highest peak on earth.

So, a Sherpa expedition has made the decision to collect trash that has been accumulated over the over decades in the final ascent of Everest, known as the Death Zone.

Each Sherpa may bring down about 20 kilos of trash on every trip, so a total of 3,000 kilos of rubbish can be lowered.

Nepalese companies will pay the cost of the expedition, all related to tourism.

This team will also bring down the bodies of climbers who died in the attempt. Previously, the rescue of these bodies had been excluded to those below 8,000 meters. But this expedition aims to recover these bodies, whethere, the families want it or not.

The expedition will take special stretchers to drag the bodies carefully.
