Even the world’s highest peak, Mount Everest, known as Mount Everest in Nepal, is not free from pollution. According to a survey conducted in 19, Mount Everest had a height of 6 meters. Mount Everest was named after the British surveyor Sir George Everest. The height of the peak known as K2 is 211 while the height of Kanchenjunga is 5 meters. At one time it was considered inaccessible to reach Mount Everest, but now the number of climbers is increasing day by day. After Adam Hillary and Tenzing, over 5,000 climbers have climbed Mount Everest in the last three years. Mount Everest is a popular destination for mountaineering in Nepal. The hard climb takes months of preparation and study.
To survive in a difficult situation, things have to go by hand. Over the years, the influx of tourists visiting Mount Everest has led to the accumulation of various scattered items and debris from bottom to top, including oxygen cylinders, tent debris, ropes, water bottles and plastic items. The waste thrown in extremely cold weather due to snow remains in that form. Last year, 11 tonnes of waste was collected by the Sagarmatha system of the Government of Nepal. Safe disposal of waste is also being considered to prevent tourists from generating garbage.
Everest Next Center is located at an altitude of 30 meters. This place is similar to the entrance to Everest. Due to Corona, only a limited number of locals will be granted entry in the near future. Secondly, the waste will be displayed in an artistic way to raise awareness about the environment. Its purpose is to draw attention to the garbage dumped on the way to Mount Everest.
