Whenever the name Mt Everest comes to mind, the picture that forms is that of a serene, white and secluded place.
But is that the actual picture?
This calm image is about to change for all living beings. Mountaineer Nirmal Purja has shocked everyone by putting into display the reality of Mount Everest and the crowd it pulls.
Just after the unpleasant news that seven climbers died last week, this new image by Mr. Purja is making rounds on the internet.
How normal is this ‘traffic’?
According to the sherpas (guides), this is a common sight around the climbing season. It depends on the available window for climbing as the mountaineers need to avoid jet streams to complete the trail.
