Nepalese Government requested to archive significant waste matter collected from Mt.Everest

Posted Jun 1st, 2011 under Community Service Project, Company News, Tourism News,

The Everest Summiteers’ Association (ESA), in collaboration with the government, Eco Himal, Nepal Mountaineering Association and Sagarmatha Pollution Control Committee, have brought tonnes of waste collected from Mount Everest to Kathmandu. As some of the waste collected include oxygen cylinders, helicopter debris, metals etc that  dates back to as early as the 1950s, the association members have requested the Nepalese government to archive these in the museum.

Happy Explorers

The meeting and handling was excellent. Everything worked! Good tents and facilities (dining & toilet tents). For young mountaineers I suggest an extra day/camp between Kyangjin Gompa and High Camp, some where around 4,400m.
