Frozen bodies of climbers on Mt. Everest

The top of the world was conquered sixty years ago by Hillary and Tenzing. This brave feat opened the doors to conquering Everest and many bold adventurers fought and lost a profoundly dangerous battle with this beast of a mountain. In particular, an area called the ‘Death Zone’ claimed many lives as men struggled to breathe in the air which is 3 times thinner than at sea level and those not properly acclimatised were overwhelmed quickly.

Due to the sheer ice, vertical drops and atmospheric pressure, at least 150 sad sculptures of fallen men remain frozen and beyond rescue in their icy grave. “Green boots”, the body of climber Tsewang Paljor, acts as a way-marker to the summit and sadly there are many more macabre signposts warning of the perils of this mountain.
