  • Everest is a picnic spot. All the rich doctors and millionaires even 60 year olds go for a picnic. Although still many die. Its the Sherpas who are the real tigers but no one mentions them. The Everest track is now so dirty. Even though they have increased the price. Everest climb should be limited to 10/12 people per day…

    • True, someone said if you want to boast about your mountaineering skills to non-mountaineers, mention Everest but if you want to boast amongst mountaineers, mention K-2.
