Nepal | 3 tons of mountaineering garbage removed from Sagarmatha NP in first surge of clean-up

More than three tons of trash were removed from Mount Everest in the first two weeks of an ambitious effort to clean the world's tallest peak.


Agence France-Presse reported Wednesday that 6,613 pounds of garbage were hauled off the mountain by a team of volunteers, part of an unprecedented plan to remove years' worth of built-up trash exposed by melting snow and ice.
