Decades of mountaineering have left the mountain contaminated.
As the current year’s spring climbing season commenced a month ago, the Nepal government sent a 14-part group with an objective to bring back 10,000 kilograms (10 tons) of junk from Everest inside a month and a half.
The group has gathered and packaged about three tons of rubbish, including void jars, jugs, plastic and disposed of climbing gear from the base camp.
The tidy up battle group has quite recently begun and individuals have climbed to higher camps to gather more rubbish,” said Dandu Raj Ghimire, head of Nepal’s travel industry division.
The cleanup process will be proceeded in the coming seasons also to make the world’s tallest mountain clean. It is our obligation to keep our mountains clean,” Ghimire said.
