In the year 1953, May 29 Late Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenjing Norgay Sherpa reached the peak of Mountain Everest for the first time. Since then more than two thousand six hundred ninety three (2,693) mountaineers have successfully climbed the Mountain Everest from its South face till date. Had we had considered numbers of helpers and assistants helping the mountaineers to reach the peak, there would have been the heap of waste materials above the base camp. However, with the vision to clean the Everest, there are many campaigns going on after 1990 A.D. Late Sir Edmund Hillary had expressed that Mt. Everest needs rest for some time.
