It’s Too Hot And Too Much Urine Can’t Take To Mount Everest Base Camp In Nepal

Due to global warming and overcrowding, Mount Nepest base camp in Nepal is becoming less safe, so a new site is being sought for it, BBC writes.

The camp is located 5,346 meters above the ever-melting Khumbu glacier, and 1,500 people move there in the spring. The new camp is scheduled to be moved at a depth of between 2 and 400 metres, where it is warmer and there is no danger of melting water.

According to previous research, 1 million cubic meters of water flows from a portion of the Khumbu glacier near the base camp each year, and a total of 9.5 million cubic meters of water dissolves from it each year. Melting glaciers is a particular danger, as it causes a huge mass of water to fall down the mountain, not to mention the rock falls. Cracks in a glacier can be life-threatening, and many climbers fear falling into one of them while they sleep.

The situation is aggravated by the fact that, according to a member of the commission that proposed the relocation, four thousand liters of human urine are produced in the base camp per day, and the gas used for cooking and heating increases the solubility.

This move is due to take place by 2024, at which time local communities, including cultural monuments, will be consulted to establish a new base camp.
