Even Mount Everest faces traffic jams!Most of us are familiar with Mount Everest it's first successful expedition and climb by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay on 29th May 1953.
Since this first conquest, this 29035 foot climb has been the dream of many mountain climbers, so much so that over 4000 people have climbed this peak.
Every summer, there is a huge crowd aiming to climb this majestic mountain. In this endeavour, Everest has been at the receiving end of litter (some call it the world's highest garbage dump), left over human waste, climbing gear,mortal remains of ill-fated climbers etc.
Over the years, the crowd has become bigger. In 2012, on a single day, 234 people climbed Mount Everest. leading to a traffic jam en route to the summit with a two and half hour wait in queues.
Many environmentalists and mountaineering experts have called to a strict regulation in the number of permits issued and avoid over-commercialisation of Mount Everest. Let's hope that man learns to admire nature from a distance.
