Traffic Jam At The Summit of Everest is Simply Insane

Summit of Everest

You will not believe your eyes, not just cities are plagued with traffic jams but they are happening on Everest where approximately 320 people were making their way to/from the summit on May 22nd, 2019.

The photo was shared by Nirmal Purja of Project Possible 14/7, who is trying to “climb all 14 of the 8,000m Himalayan peaks in a single 7 month season, breaking the previous record of 7 years, 11 months and 14 days.”

The photo becomes viral and has been used in recent days to increase awareness about the congestion concerns on Everest as earlier this week another mountaineer died after summiting Mount Everest, taking the death toll for the 2019 climbing season to 11 people and the reason behind is issuing permits in great quantities by the authorities. You can read more about the congestion and overcrowding problems in this CNN article.
