  7. 7. What are the problems?<br />Hundreds of people make an attempt at the world&apos;s highest peak each year, leaving oxygen tanks, food packaging and tents in their wake - excess weight discarded on the descent. <br />While it took 30 years for the first 150 climbers to surmount Everest, the same number completed the expedition over a 3-day period in 2001.<br />In 2004 there were some 379,000. They &quot;are a bigger worry&quot;<br />Providing enough electricity & water for the small communities surrounding Everest becomes very challenging when there are tens of thousands of additional tourists & climbers competing for these resources.<br />along the trail towards Everest there are now restaurants and cyber cafes and bars, and this just doesn&apos;t seem right.&apos;<br />
  8. 8.
  9. 9. Solutions<br />The Nepalese authorities are now pushing climbers to use metal containers, which can be brought down in crushed form and then recycled, rather than plastic or glass. <br />&quot;if we keep the area clean, it means more business for tour operators, local people and porters&quot;. <br />The Nepalese government now makes expeditions pay a deposit, which is only returnable if they bring their rubbish back down. <br />Clean-up climbs, and financial incentives for porters to fill empty bags with mountain litter <br />&quot;Things are improving, the area is getting cleaner, people are much more cautious about their garbage,&quot; <br />
