A group of climbers from Nepal have received immense praise after spending 47 days cleaning and collecting over 2.2 tons of garbage scattered around Mount Everest base camp.


With more mountaineering enthusiasts attempting to scale Everest, the routes leading up to the summit have been engulfed with trash such as discarded oxygen cylinders, food wrappers, cans, plastic water bottles, kitchen waste and more.


With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, tourists are restricted from visiting popular travel destinations. Nepal’s climbing community seized the opportunity created by this tourism lull by coming forward and cleaning Mount Everest.
