ABC special on Everest overcrowding

Postby wildwanderer » Mon 19 Jul, 2021 9:59 am

On four corners tonight 8.30pm AEST.

Seems to be interviews and footage of the infamous conga line of mountaineers waiting to move up the mountain.

Should be an interesting show if you're interested in mountaineering and the challenges of excessive adventure tourism on Everest.

Interesting program.

Sadly seems not much will change this year.

It's easy to think, from the comfort of the lounge room, they should reduce the number of permits (and I do).

Unfortunately the reality is there are 1000s of Nepalese that are dependent on the Everest climbing operators for their economic survival.
