Sydney: The chief of Nepal's mountaineering association has said that human waste left by climbers on Mount Everest is creating a lot of environmental pollution and threatening to spread diseases on the world's highest peak.
According to News.com.au, Ang Tshering said that more than 700 climbers and guides spend nearly two months on Everest's slopes every season and leave large amount of human waste and urine.
He also said that this issue has not been addressed as yet.
He urged the government to take action so that the climbers dispose of the waste properly in order to keep the mountain pristine.
