In the entrance of Sagarmatha Park, altitude 9,200 ft, Himalayan blue pine dominates the landscape, sprinkled with Himalayan hemlock, prickly oak, rhododendron, and Wallich’s yew—trees that take advantage of the heavier rain fall at these lower altitudes. Fir-birch-rhododendron forests occur between 8,200 and 12,800 ft, totally on north-facing aspects. Walnut, whitebeam, and tree juniper occur from time to time, as perform a huge assortment of dwarf and tree-form rhododendrons, particularly colorful in early to late spring, blossoming and fading in sequence until the start of the monsoon rains. Huge ancient juniper trees cluster around monasteries where they’ve been protected for years and years, showing what size these along with other trees can grow if left undisturbed. The northern side of Mount Everest is sparsely populated. The only real year-round residents would be the Buddhist priests in the Rongbuk monastery, and also the Kama Valley is not inhabited aside from periodic Tibetan yak herders. However the Khumbu region continues to be heavily impacted by human activities, especially in the past 20 to 30 years using the exponential development of mountaineering, trekking, and adventure tourism. The most typical damage includes removing slow-growing all downhill shrubs and cushion plants by lodge proprietors, porters, and climbing parties to be used as fuel. Such clearing accelerates soil erosion and reduces slope stability, when i could evaluate within the 1980s. Other disturbances within the all downhill zone come from elevated figures of pack creatures, mainly yak and dzo (a mixture of yak and cow), introduced directly into accommodate growing figures of vacationers. Waterborne health risks have faster because of improper human waste disposal. Camping sites, base camps, and camp regions are damaged by accumulations of solid waste.
In 2004, the Mountain Institute and American All downhill Club became a member of with residents within the upper Imja Valley to create the very first Khumbu All downhill Conservation Committee. This community organization started active efforts to safeguard and restore its all downhill environments your clients’ needs using imported oil like a fuel option to wood from juniper and all downhill cushion plants. Juniper cover has obtained a powerful foothold within the last decade, but a lot more work remains completed to remedy the growing problems of solid waste and human waste management.
The Three,500 Sherpa individuals who survive the Nepal side from the mountain in Khumbu are thought to be descendants from the original Sherpa pioneers who showed up from Tibet five centuries ago. Pangboche and Dingboche villages were already well-known as meditation sites when from the migration, however, and Sherpa legends condition that shepherds grazed their herds here prior to the appearance of their ancestors. Geographer Stan Stevens writes of “certain ruins in high places within the Dudh Kosi valley” thought to happen to be early shepherd huts. Testing of charcoal and soil samples I’ve collected implies that humans started cutting and burning the south-facing Himalayan forests between 3,000 and 5,000 years back. Fir-birch-rhododendron forest (still common of all north-facing slopes) was opened up up with time, probably by Rai or Gurung ethnic groups in the south transforming the land for cattle grazing.

adam garrett: i was thinking of climbing Everest….this just saved me a trip…thanks guys
Jack Meyhoffer: Doesn't look that hard to climb. Hold my beer and I'll show you.
Mary Stroughton: Jack Meyhoffer 😂😂
Renagade Redblack: BRRRUUUOOOP!
dada lala: this is good for ppl that want to commit suicide
Paul Grey: +Clair Jackson \nYoutubes as low as it gets. I had to add 'Jesus is a Demon' to my name, because a 'Christian' troll keeps impersonating me from a fake account. \nYoutube couldn't care any less, like a free for all.
Paul Grey: +Grant Rawlinson, good to see that you have standards. That is a good thing.\n\nBut shit, try & stop arseholes from saying fuck on youtube? Good luck with that : ) \n\nLike the vid. Shame there's little detail though.\n Having read many Everest accounts, 'Into Thin Air' several times for e.g., it's a bit hard to visualise features like The Balcony, or how far the South Summit is from the Hilary Step (described by Krakauer as 'no more than a stones throw) for e.g. \nMost pictures are from the slope which gives a flat perspective. \n\nA video from base camp to the summit, filmed from a helicopter, would be very cool & would give those of us who'll never go there, a better perspective. That'd be a good little youtube earner.\n\nFor those who think it can't be done, a crazy Frenchman landed a helicopter on the peak of Everest in 2005.
ZeroNadaZilch: Pretty sure I could jog up that in half a day, easily.
FireTurtle: tell me more jokes,i like it,but don't make it a yo mama joke.
Walt Kowalski: I've read nearly 12K daily from physical exertion and the breaking down of the body at the ambient temps and the lack of ozygen.
