– Our greatest God

For many years he wrote about the trash on the mountain.

Kancha Sherpa believes that the authorities should reduce the number of people allowed to climb the mountain, and that those who do climb should show more respect.

Some climbers throw their waste into the crevasse, which is hidden at the time, but it will eventually flow into the base camp when the snow melts and carries it down, says Kancha.
