Everest Clean up



It is thought as many as 150 bodies are still on the mountainside, beyond the reach of recovery because of treacherous climbing conditions.
Around 300 people have died along a perilous stretch of the world’s highest peak known as the “death zone” because of its lack of oxygen and treacherous terrain.

The Nepali climbers, known as Sherpas, are also aiming to clean up decades-old rubbish from the mountain in what is being called the world’s highest ever clean-up campaign.
