Nepal is urging climbers on Mount Everest, the world's highest peak, to help remove garbage from a camp abandoned two years ago after an earthquake triggered avalanches killing 18 people, as officials prepare to handle a rush of climbers.Ten huge canvas bags each capable of holding 80 kg (176 lbs) of trash are to be placed at the ruined site of Camp Two on Mount Everest for climbers to deposit garbage they have retrieved, said Tourism Department official Durga Dutta Dhakal.More than 600 people scaled the 8,850-meter (29,035-foot) Everest summit last year from the Nepali and Chinese sides.
