The region’s measures for mountaineering safety ma

anagement include controlling the number of climbers, limiting the climbing seas

on, setting high requirements and maintaining the high-traffic climbing routes.

“Seasonally, since 2017, we have only allowed climbers on Mount Q

omolangma in spring due to favorable weather conditions of the northern slope,” Trinley said.

“Controlling the number of climbers is another key measure to ensure both mountaineering safety and ecological protection,” he said.

In 2019, the north face routes had a total of 362 people, including 142 foreign climbers from

33 countries, 12 domestic climbers and 208 Nepali Sherpa mountaineering guides, the association said.

Within the last few years, the overall number of climbers has averaged 290, the association said.

We feel China is now beginning to attach importance to the natural

could not agree more with President Xi on the great importance of green development and preservation of nature.

The state of the natural environment affects every living being, as well as the lives of future generations.

For instance, if one doesn’t take care of one’s eyes, one’s eyesight might reduce.

And if one disregards the quality of air one breathes, reduction might occur to one’s lifespan.

Thus green development is the cornerstone of the future.
