China recently had to tell tourists that their Mount Everest base camp is closed… because it is too full of trash.
So, is this China’s fault?
This has been a problem that has been happening for YEARS.
According to South China Morning Post, Nepal has implemented a $4,000 trash deposit cost per team due to all the trash that climbers leave behind.
Only problem with that are climbers are usually rich, so they don’t care about the deposit. Only half the climbers in recent years have been bringing down the required amount of garbage.
And that doesn’t even take into account the fecal matter. Because, yes, people go to the bathroom on the mountain. 12,000 lbs. worth every year.
Here’s hoping that China can figure out how to get their camp clean, and then help work on the rest of this mess.
