View of Mt. Everest
The Tibet Mountaineering Team has been upgraded to the national level China Mountaineering Team (Tibet) and will perform large-scale cleanup activities this year. It marks the first time remains of mountaineering victims above 8,000 meters will be recovered on Mt. Everest.
As part of the campaign, victims' remains will be brought down from the mountain when possible, according to Nyima Tsering, the team captain.
Moreover, the region plans to reduce by about one-third the amount of climbers permitted in 2019 on the northern slope of Mt. Everest, known as Mount Everest in the West, to better fight pollution.
Tibet has issues a series of policies to protect the environment of Mt. Everest.
From last year, Tourism Authorities in Tibet Autonomous Region of China introduced environmentally friendly electric vehicles to the Mt. Everest National Park and plan to gradually ban non-electric vehicles in this place in the near future.
Since December 5, 2018, any units and individuals were prohibited from entering the core area of the Mt. Everest (the areas above Rongbuk Monastery), and tourists can visit the views of Mt. Everest in Rongbuk Monastery and nearby due to the need to protect the environment. (Rongbuk Monastery is also one of the best places to see the view of Mt. Everest)
Mount Everest attracts thousands of tourists every year. The Mount Everest Base Camp received more than 140,000 tourists last year and lots of rubbish will be produced accordingly. Due to the special location, it is more difficult to clean up these area, so it is necessary to take more acts to protect the environment of Mt. Everest.

1. Are kids suitable (or even allowed) for this tour?
2. If kids can join, are there any discount deals for kids?
Dear Ms. Ho***,
Greetings from Helen at Budget Tibet Tour and welcome you to join our 10 days Mt. Everest & Namtso Lake group tour. For your questions: 1. Your kids are suitable for this tour. Travelling in Tibet is as safe for kids as it is for their parents. While the high Tibetan plateau may be the highest place on the planet, very often, the kids that visit this region are more adaptable and have fewer problems than their parents. We also have arranged wonderful Tibet tours for many families with kids such as a tour to EBC for a family with a 3-year-old son, a 9-year-old girl and a 11-year-old boy, they did have fun in Tibet and there is no problem for them. Or you can take some medicine under the guidance of doctor to prevent high altitude before enter Tibet. 2. If kids travel with you, we'll offer some discount for them, please check your email and find more detailed information. Thanks & Regards
