Nepalese Sherpas plan Everest clean-up


Published on Apr 22, 2010

A team of 20 Nepalese Sherpas is planning to scale Everest to clean up rubbish from the world’s highest mountain, the BBC has reported. The Sherpas will work above 8,000m, in what's known as the ‘Death Zone’ because of the thin air and dangerous conditions. The expedition will also bring back the bodies of at least two climbers, who previously died on the slopes.
