Nepal government has made a decision to ask the climbers of mount Everest to clean up their litters. The officials will be checking each descending climber’s trash, including empty gas tanks that normally get discarded on the paths.
Maddhu Sudan Burlakoti, head of the mountaineering department at the tourism ministry, said: “We are not asking climbers to search and pick up trash left by someone else. We just want them to bring back what they took up.”
This, we hope will encourage every climbers to keep the Everest area clean and make climbing more attractive.
