Everest climbing route changed for additional safety
Advertisement
#1
Quote:The route used by mountaineers to scale Mount Everest is to be changed amid fears of an increased avalanche risk.Nepal will change the path next month after a deadly collapse in 2014 killed 16 Sherpa guides - the worst single loss of life in expedition history.

Mountaineers will now take a more central route after Base Camp, avoiding the left side of the Khumbu Icefall, where last year's accident occurred.
