Mount Everest is quickly becoming the world’s highest garbage dump. According to estimates, there are nearly 120 tons of litter. The trash includes high-tech climbing equipment, plastics, food, tins, oxygen tanks, aluminum cans, clothes, glass, paper and tents. The Nepalese government has initiated biannual clean-up expeditions, and some ecologists have suggested giving the mountain a rest (i.e.: be closed to climbers) for a year.
