Nepali officers may require hopping to scale Mount Everest to prove their physical fitness

Mount Everest marked the mortal rate by 11 deaths on its slopes that were called as a deadly and controversial season. Out of the 11 deaths that surpassed, nine deaths were on the side of Nepal. The 2019 season followed permission for only 381 climbers.

According to a leading outlet, Nepal is all set to declare its new proposition regarding climbing of the mountain. The strategy includes on Mount-Everest tourism. A panel which consists of Nepali officials and members scrutinized that inexperienced climbers should be barred from climbing the mountain. The panel has come to a point where they will be allowing experienced climbers. Nepal’s Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation denied any comments on the glared up to the topic.

The guidelines set out this year by the panel follows that a climber has to pass the thread of at least 6,500 meters before attempting to summit Everest. The mountaineers will have to deposit a fee of $35,000 with a “certificate of physical fitness.” The guidelines also formulate that the mountaineers need to hire ‘experienced guides’ to make their summit to Everest dreams true and reasonable. For now, the fee to climb Mount Everest rests upon $11,000. Nepal’s entire economy or a major part lies heavily on tourism. It brings in $300 million revenue each year from tourism.

Previously, the tourist board did not hold conclave for restricting the number of Mount Everest climbers. But this year, the Nepal officers have strictly decided to go by experience and not by number. With a heavy and bolstering fee, the country is effectively barring climbers and operators from climbing the slopes of the Mount Everest. The mountaineers have to work hard to build their strength as they have to climb 6,500 meters first and then think of getting to the summit.
