Everest climbing season begins


A Nepalese mountaineering official says the Everest climbing season began this week with new rules that require climbers to bring down their personal garbage, and adds security at the base camp for the safety of climbers.

Tourism Ministry official Maddhu Sudan Burlakoti said individual climbers going beyond the base camp will be required to bring down at least eight kilograms of their personal garbage and hand it over to officials stationed there.

The government is also opening up a contact office tent at the base camp with officials stationed there throughout the Spring climbing season that begins in March and ends in May.

They will offer help to climbers, resolve any problems between climbers and monitor the garbage situation.
