Four bodies and 11 tons of garbage were taken from Mount Everest by Nepalese serpa mountain guides during a one-month cleanup. Dandu Radz Ghimire, head of the tourism ministry, said that a group of 12 serpents gathered dozens of oxygen bottles, cans, ropes and tents from several camps in the world’s highest mountain.
“In the base camp, the rubbish was separated, only the recyclable waste was returned to Kathmandu. The trash was taken over by a recycling company in Kathmandu, ”he added.
During the Nepalese climbing season, mountain guides set up camps where supplies are taken from the base camp. According to the law, every climber must bring back at least eight kilograms of waste, but due to the loose control, this rule is not fully respected.
To date, 8848 meters of Mount Everest have reached about 5,000, and more than 300 have died on the mountain. This year’s spring season – 11 people say they have lost their lives due to overcrowding. The corpses that have just been taken have been taken to a hospital in the capital, and forensic medical assistant was asked for identification.
The highest point in the world and its surroundings are threatened by mass, pollution and global warming. John All, professor at the Western Washington University, who, together with his companions, has been researching the state of snow and glaciers for weeks in Mount Everest, from the mountains to the Nepalese capital, returning to Kathmandu to find that many pollutants have been found deep in the snow and were surprised by the snow in the dark on his color when he was stabbed and sifted. The snow forms a shell around the small particles of particles, trapped and transported to the deeper layers.
John All and his team at Mount Everest and the surrounding peaks were studying the purity of the snow, and at the foot of the mountains the plants were analyzed. The rising temperature is “very fast” melting snow and glaciers on Mount Everest, glaciers “dropping” dramatically as a result of global warming. As they shrink, the ice fields will become increasingly dangerous for climbers in the future, the researcher said.
The American research team wanted to climb Everest and his sister, the 8516-meter Lhoc, but due to the traffic congestion in Everest, they were forced to change their plans. They waived to climb to the top of Everest, reaching only the highest point of the two peaks, reaching 8000 meters, and climbing the lower sister peak. In May, hundreds of mountaineers had been rushing for days to climb to the top of Everest, causing an unprecedented congestion on the highest mountain peak in the world. According to John All, it would have been too dangerous to collect snow in the slow moving mass.
Data collected at the “top of the world” will be returned to the United States and a report on the results will be published. John All and his associates conducted similar researches in 2009 and, as they have said, “many things have changed in the mountains over the past 10 years,” and “ecologically everything has changed in the wrong direction for long-term survival”.
