"Human waste left by mountaineers on Mount Everest is creating a lot of environmental pollution and threatening to spread diseases on the world's highest peak," said Ang Tshering, the chief of Nepal's mountaineering association.
"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. This issue has not been addressed as yet," said Tshering.
