8 tons of garbage collected from Mount Everest


KATHMANDU: Every year hundreds of submitter climb Mount Everest and also set different records but they fail to clear the garbage properly leaving the Everest dirty. However there are some initiatives to clean the Mount Everest.

Members of a campaign dedicated to cleaning up Mt Everest informed that they have collected over 8 tons of waste from the mountain over a period of one year.

Ang Dorje Sherpa, a campaigner with ‘Saving Everest’ said that the drive was launched in 2011 to clean up the highest mountain in the world and raise awareness about keeping the area clean.

He said that the campaign will segregate the waste, which has been brought to Namche, before bringing it to Kathmandu. Some of the waste will be incinerated in Namche itself, he added.

Meanwhile, an exhibition of photos taken by Swede Photographer Martin Edstom during the cleanup campaign has begun at the Nepal Tourism Board office in Kathmandu. Similar exhibitions will also be organized in Namche Bazaar and Pokhara, reports quoted campaigners as saying.
