Everest pollution issues

In spite of the high costs involved, needed solid climbing and mountaineering skills and the necessary mental strength, more and more climbers attempt the ascent especially on the Nepalese side. This results in "traffic jams" in the Death Zone, and tons of garbage to deal with.

Reaching the highest place on the globe is of course an exciting challenge often representing the dream of a lifetime. It is up to everyone to weigh the pros and cons of commercial expeditions.
