‘Overcrowding not a cause of death’

  • Published on: May 26, 2019



  • Kathmandu, 27 May: While national and international media reports connected the deaths of climbers on Mt Everest this season to overcrowding, the Department of Tourism has said that such claims were misleading and unwarranted.

    Issuing a press statement, the department which is responsible for managing expeditions argued that since the causes of climbers’ death can be determined only through proper investigations, it is sad to see overcrowding alone being blamed for the climber deaths.

    “Since the causes of the deaths can be ascertained only through a ‘scientific system’, the Department urges everyone to be careful while sharing views (on social media) on important and sensitive issues like mountaineering,” reads the press statement.
