A record number of climbers killed in climbing mount Everest for the last 10 days. This writes the Daily Mail Online.
The latest “victim” of the highest mountain on the planet became the 62-year-old American lawyer from Colorado Christopher John Kulish. It is noted that Kulish second American and the 11th dead climber for the last 10 days.
The lawyer was part of a group of climbers, and celebrated his birthday on the mountain. But after the descent he became ill and he died.
This situation stems from the huge flow of tourists to the mountain, which is quite rare. Canadian filmmaker posted a photo of climbers, where you can see massive traffic jam on the mountain. The hype associated with the so-called “window to the mountains”, which gives the opportunity to see everything without the cloud. This is the cause of many hours of delays and complicates the descent. Many groups of climbers are not ready for such a situation.
It is also known that in addition to the two Americans on the mountain found four unidentified bodies, the identity of another five climbers were not disclosed.
