The Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality, which covers most of the Everest region, has drawn up new rules to deal with the problem of waste on the world’s highest peak, the BBC reports.

To deal with the growing environmental problems on Mount Everest, Nepal has announced a new rule under which climbers will have to bring their feces back to base camp for proper disposal. This information was given on Thursday.

The Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality, which covers most of the Everest region, has drawn up new rules to deal with the problem of waste on the world’s highest peak, the BBC reports.

The report quoted Mingma Sherpa, chairman of Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality, as saying that a foul smell was emanating from the mountains. “We are receiving complaints that human excreta is visible on the rocks and some climbers are falling ill,” Mingma said. This is not acceptable, it tarnishes our image.
