People carry garbage in Camp 2 at an altitude of 6,500 meters on Mt. Everest
The Sports Bureau of Southwest China's Tibet autonomous region plans to spend 4 million yuan ($590,000) on its large-scale cleanup campaign of Qomolangma, also known as Mount Everest in the West, starting from 2019, as bureau chief Nyima Tsering told China Daily in an exclusive interview.
Offered by the Ministry of Finance, the money will be used for bringing down the remains of victims above 8,000 meters and other cleanup work in the mountainous region.
The number of climbers allowed to visit the mountainous region will also be limited to 200 every year, down from the previous 300.
Tsering noted as the number of climbers drops, the size of staff is expected to shrink as well, thus preserving a better environment on the world's highest mountain.
In order to protect the environment of Mt. Everest, a series of policies were issued/ acted from 2018 such as Tourism Authorities in Tibet Autonomous Region of China are introducing environmentally friendly electric vehicles to Mt. Everest and plan to gradually ban non-electric vehicles to the camp in the near future; From December 5, 2018, any units and individuals were prohibited from entering the core area of Mount Everest, tourists can enjoy the view of Mt. Everest in Rongbuk Monastery where is one of the best place to see the view of Mt. Everest and below areas.
After so many measures were taken, we have faith that the great achievement will be received to protect the environment of Mt. Everest, and provide the best view for more and more tourists.
