That infuriates me that people liter Everest. It's one of the most beautiful things in nature. Have people NO respect or control when doing this bandwagon feat?

Mt. Everest being covered in trash (10 tons, what the *fuck?)* really pisses me off. Is there no place safe from attention-seeking morons anymore? It needs a good snow storm or avalanche wiping out a few hundred of the idiots, then maybe the other dumbasses will change their minds, and spread their trash in Utah again.

This is excellent. I'm a bit surprised at no mention of Green Boots.

Well, the dead bodies up there are used as landmarks. So there's a way to really become immoral, even if you do die. "oh look, it's blue jacket guy. We're almost at camp then"

Oh noooo, did Ben Fogle (British Broadcaster/Writer/Adventurer) climb Mount Everest as well?! He was indeed extremely fast in hugging that Sherpa he questioned!! It sure felt like Ben was squising "the white guilt" out of that sherpa 😒.

That silly of you to expect from Nepal, our leaders are treating covid19 with sneezing and hot water...preventing it by advicing to eat turmeric and ginger while they r busy buying masks, pcr kits n all for several times higher than market price...

Does anyone climb Everest outside commercial expeditions at all anymore? It's pretty hard to take any Everest climbers seriously if sherpas have done everything except physically carry them up the mountain.

Ok. I climbed the ULM steeple. And that is nothing compared to everest and the hardest part was GOING FUCKING DOWN. You'll go up thinking. Ooof man this rough. No.....hell No. And it's scary why you feel you leg wobble in that tiny hall that allows only 1 person to pass and there are other below you. You had better not fall. So NO NO DO NOT WANT TO CLIMB MOUNT EVEREST

America's Got Talent has shown us anyone can sing and now anyone can go up Everest. So we should no longer glorify "Pop Stars" or people who climbed Everest.

I suggest everyone to watch the movie 'Himalaya' aka the caravan movie to see of how sherpas risks their lives to carry rock salt down the mountain and survive

Put a cage on the summit and charge them another $10k if they want to enter. They're already there, they can't refuse.

No one ever acknowledges the sherpas who traversed the mountain before Hillary. Norgay was not the first. Cheeky white guy! Also, not enough anti anxiety meds in the world to cover that!!😯😖😷

For $130,000 a climb I'd expect to be carried up the mountain on a Persian rug spanned between the four rarest mountain goats, before enjoying a tub of Ferrero Rocher Ben & Jerry's (made exclusively for me, of course) as I sit in a golden hot tub on top of the summit awaiting my ride back down, i.e. an actual Eagle from Lord of the Rings, brought to life by advance science and a first print edition of The Return of the King. Or, if I had that much cash to waste, I'd forgo actually risking my life to climb a bloody mountain and just give the $130,000 to the Sherpa community to build a school or something because seriously wtf are we doing as a species??? :/

I wonder how many people would climb Everest if cameras were prohibited like in museums... By the way, John stoically presented the whole show with snow trousers, respect!

Well now thanks to Coronavirus, nobody is climbing Everest..!
Pity how he avoids saying that the responsible government here (once more) is China. Tibet is the province which carries out the regulation, but in charge of the Tibet route is still China

People interested in this story should read Jon Krakauer's 'Into Thin Air'. Making it to the top is like 30% of the journey. Making it back down is very much not guaranteed.
