These Mountain Climbers Waited to Death

On this day 66 years ago, Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary became the first two people to reach the summit of Mount Everest. Had they tried it this year, they were likely to get caught in a traffic jam of climbers.

    Climbing will never be what it was. The one millionth customer! That's the exciting accomplishment now.

    People should also consider the environmental impact and Sherpas. There is a great documentary 'Sherpas in trouble' from 2013

    what a joke 😂 I blame the “you can be anything you’d like” upbringing. “No you cannot John, you’re a fat lazy cunt who’s never climbed before” 😅

    Worst case scenario for Himalayan ecosystems. The poor government of Nepal wanted just the money now but not willing to save Himalayas. Its beyond the reach of environment activist where government itself is involved in destruction of delicate Himalayan ecosystem.

    Lets hear from some climbers. You hold the mountain in awe, and you trash her sacred soil? How does that even cross your mind?
