Mount Everest Trash Is Turned Into Art

Hi Friends and Bloggers,

I found this interesting article and thought you would like it too. The first thing that caught my attention was how in the world could there be 8 tons of trash left on Mount Everest, one of the most remote places on earth? I discovered that 4,000 people have climbed the peak in the Himalayas since 1953. Apparently, they have left a lot of trash behind. The second question was how did they get the trash down? The article states: “It took 65 porters and 75 yaks to carry down the rubbish from the mountain over two Spring expeditions.”   Click Here to read more and see the photos of the art.
