Mount Everest Overcrowding Causes Lethal Conditions

Mount Everest Overcrowding Causes Lethal Conditions Officials have confirmed that four mountaineers died this week while climbing Mount Everest.

Anjali Kulkarni, Kalpana Dash and Don Cash died while descending the mountain and Nihal Bagwan died at the balcony area before the summit.

All of the climbers had been subjected to a queue of over 200 people attempting to reach the mountain’s peak.

The queue stretched from the final base camp, which sits at an elevation of 8,000 meters, to the final 8,848 meter summit.

The area is known as the “death zone” because the lack of oxygen available makes it extremely dangerous to stay for a prolonged amount of time.

Danduraj Ghimire, director general of Nepal’s tourism department, said the human traffic jam was due to bad weather conditions.
