Conquering Mount Everest was once the holy grail of mountaineering. And it basically still is, though more people are making the attempt than ever. Not everyone who tries the climb makes it home, but why? Here's why Mount Everest is claiming so many lives.
Mount Everest is more than 29,000 feet tall, which might make you think most victims of the mountain die by falling. But that's only the second most common cause of death. According to the BBC, most people who die on Everest are killed in avalanches. The third most common cause of death on the mountain is exposure or frostbite, which accounts for around 11% of fatalities. Other causes of death include falling ice, rope accidents, pneumonia, or even drowning.
Surprisingly, more people die on the way down from the summit than on the way up, and route preparation is dangerous, too. A total of 120 people have died while working on the routes, with a handful more dying at base camp, en route to base camp, or during an evacuation. So really, you're not safe anywhere on Mount Everest.

Truth is they're dumb white idiots that dont have the experience to be up there. They put everyone at risk too.

Think i have seen all the documentaries IDvid has to offer on this and my conclusion is this!! Sherpas make from $4500 to $5000 to bring these morons up there. Nepal charges $11000 per climber for a permit. What the hell is going on here. The sherpas need to group and form a union to get their share of the money. I make a good salary no way i could afford to make it there so its only for the rich dumb bragging class that can afford this. But the Sherpas do all the work and even lose their lives carrying these dumb asses up and down this hill. From bodies thawing out and popping up to frozen corpses all over the side of this thing is not something to be proud of ' but a goddamn nightmare. Look at a cemetery next time and then look at this mountain. Its the same goddamn thing. Shame on Nepal for letting this go on without more intense follow up on the people they sell permits to.

They need to put in place. Age restrictions and experience restrictions. Most of the climbers don't have much experience.

The companies that take these people up to the summit should have life insurance policies for the Sherpas so their families aren't fucked.

Everest is amateur hour, in my opinion. Real climbing truth comes from people like Joe Simpson, and others, who have mastered real tech climb, without the bells and whistles. Climbing has become , like so many other fine points of man's quest, simply a matter of who has the most money, to buy the best toys. How incredibly boring.

So the Sherpa communities that are above 4000 meters, their bodies have evolved/adapted over time to deal with high altitudes much better than anyone else on the planet. How might my body cope in the death zone being born and raised at 40 meters above sea level?

Come on why die on the way back. Keep skiing boards and glide your way down. I think it's not that hard as people think. I should do it in few hours maybe 3-4

I would of loved to summit this mountain 25-30 years ago... nowadays not so much. Too much $$$ involved and way too much risk with so many people. NOT WORTH IT.
