    The landscape on the mountain is changing with the climate change, snow is melting, ponds are merging into lakes, etc. This is not just sad, it’s dangerous for future hikers.

    According to scientists, Mount Everest is melting as a sign of climate change.  The landscape has changed significantly since it was first climbed in 1953.  They found that a glacier has retreated 3 miles since that time, and glacial floods have scared the area around the mountain, and the lakes around the mountain are becoming overfilled and larger.  Tashi Janghu Sherpa, president of the Nepal Mountain Association, “told us that he had seen quite rapid and significant changes over the past 20 years in the ice fields and that these changes appeared to be accelerating.”
