A 30-member Indian Army mountaineering team is preparing to scale the Mount Everest to mark 50 years of ascent of the world’s highest mountain peak by India. But this time the army men have an additional mission – to cleanse the slopes and the peak off non-biodegradable waste left by generation of mountain climbers.

The world’s most iconic mountain is also a notorious trash heap. On Mount Everest, tents, sleeping bags, tins, packets, oxygen cylinders and even the corpses of climbers who never made it down remain.

The Indian Army team aims to bring at least 4,000 kg of waste from the high-altitude camps down to the base camp, and then the other volunteers will take over the drive to clean the Himalayas.
