Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Everest: Top Sherpas slam Nepal’s plan to clean rubbish from mountain

The peak of Mount Everest rests at 8,848 meters above sea level. It is part of the Himalayas, a mountain range in Asia stretching about 2,400 kilometers across the countries of Bhutan, India, Nepal, China, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. Recently, more people want to reach the peaks of those high mountains, and Mount Everest alone attracted 800 mountaineers in 2018. The problem is that they leave trash behind, such as oxygen and cooking gas cylinders, climbing gear and other rubbish like food wrappers, cans, and bottles. Also, most of them leave their poo and some of them their own bodies. Such trash, human waste, and bodies amount to tons in and around all over the mountains waiting to be removed. In order to clean the mess, humans need to go up, collect the trash and bodies, and carry them down because they are left beyond the reach of garbage collection trucks. The question is who and how? Sherpas or soldiers?

Indeed, Mount Everest has a mountain of a problem.

Enjoy reading the article and learn about the amounting problem in and around the mountain peaks.
