The pathway to the camp II of Mt Everest has been opened. A team of Icefall Doctors, tasked with building the pathway to the world's highest peak, Mt Everest, has cleared the route from the base camp to the camp II. According to the Sagarmatha (Mount Everest) Pollution Control Committee (SPCC), six icefall doctors are presently working on installing signals, stairs, and ropes.

The climbers have now already left for camp II after the pathway was cleared by the icefall doctors, said SPCC vice-president Lama Kaji Sherpa. In order to acclimatize, the climbers have to go from the base camp to the camp II and return.

Sherpa said that 15 stairs have been used from the base camp to the camp II this time. Earlier, 32 were used in 2018, but only 20 in 2019 BS. The pathway to camp II is also used to climb Lhotse and Nuptse mountains.
