Cimber draws attention to pollution at Everest

2022 Jun 27, 18:25, Kathmandu

Everest climber Dr. Priti Bhushal has drawn the attention of concerned bodies to solve the problem of increased pollution on Mount Everest.

In a meeting with journalists in Kathmandu, she said that immediate clean-up was needed in Camp No. 4 of Everest. She informed that camps 1, 2, and 3 on Everest are relatively clean.

As Nepal's first female doctor, Dr. Bhusal climbed Mt. Everest in the spring. She climbed Mt. Everest to honor the contributions of leading doctors, pharmacists, nurses, hospital administration staff, ambulance drivers, and social workers.

According to her, the second goal of her ascent was to convey the message that there is no alternative to mitigating the effects of climate change. She said she climbed Mt. Everest to spread the message around the world to stop the rising pollution in the Himalayan region.

Dr. Bhushal has been involved in mountaineering and swimming since her childhood. This time her expedition was led by mountaineer Pemba Dorje Sherpa.

Dr. Bhushal further plans to promote medicine and mountaineering together and aims to work as a high altitude and sports doctor. She is currently working at Grande International Hospital in Dhapasi, Kathmandu.

She plans to climb Manaslu and Amadablam mountains in the autumn of this year. She said that if she climbed the peak regularly, she would be able to run a health camp at the base camp and the beneficiaries would be able to take advantage of it.

She believes that everyone should get experience climbing a mountain higher than 6,000 meters. "And any person should be physically and mentally strong to climb Mt. Everest and experience. It would cost Rs 3.5 to 4 million for Nepali mountaineers", she says.
