Two Climbers of America and Switzerland have died on Mount Everest, the world’s highest peak. This is the first death in this season of mountain climbing this year. Campaign organizers in Nepal informed about this on Thursday. Mingma Sherpa of ‘Seven Summit Trek’ told news agency AFP that two climbers died on Wednesday.
Chang Dawa Sherpa of ‘Seven Summit Trek’ said that the Swiss climber died after reaching the summit of Mount Everest. He said that he was suffering from exhaustion. We sent two additional Sherpas with oxygen and food to help him, but unfortunately we could not save him. Organizers said that American climber Hillary reached the step, but she began to have snow blindness and fatigue. After this, he was brought down. The climber managed to reach Camp 4, but later died.
Number of climbers fixed to climb Everest
The recent mountaineering season has seen an increase in the number of climbers climbing Everest. Due to this, there is a lot of crowd and it is considered responsible for the deaths here. In order to control the crowd, the Ministry of Tourism of Nepal has announced new rules. Under this, a number has been fixed with regard to how many people will be allowed to climb the mountain in the season. Generally, the month of April-May is considered favorable for climbing the mountain.
Quarantine rules relaxed to attract climbers
The previous mountaineering season was completely ruined by the coronavirus epidemic. But this time Nepal has relaxed the rules of Quarantine to attract more number of climbers. It is to be noted here that this has been done even after the increasing cases of corona in Nepal and there is no better treatment for patients. Climbing this snow-covered mountain in Nepal in hot weather has also become dangerous because the country is facing the second wave of Corona. Last week, 30 sick mountaineers were evacuated from the base camp. However, only two of them were found to be infected with corona.
