The world’s highest peak is full of waste left over by the climbers. Climbers with their guides leave behind lots of garbage, even organic. The base camp, 5,300 meters high, is not equipped with sewers but latrines are emptied into drums which are then disposed of. In the other four fields, which are located at different heights from the base to the peak, it is common to dig a hole in the ice to bury the feces. But when the temperatures increase, the ice melts and these excrements resurface, causing an unpleasant odor. While the garbage left over blocks many paths on the mountain.
