Climbing Mount Everest

Mt. Everest has around 200 dead bodies on the mountain. It is nearly impossible for recovery of a body off the mountain. The “death zone”  is 26,000 feet. The air there is so thin. Lack of oxygen leaves climber bewildered and weak and can cause them to pass out and get frostbite. The bodies are left the same as how they died and have become landmarks for travelers. The photograph shows a body which has been given the name “green boots” and has been there since 1996.

An article about the bodies of climbers of Mt Everest who died. I was not aware that this was a "thing" until today. The photo is of green boots.
