And nobody is in a hurry to clean them from there …

On Everest, mountaineer groups walk past unburied corpses scattered here and there, these are the same climbers, only they are out of luck. One of them broke and broke his bones, someone is cold or just weak and still cold.

What morality can be at an altitude of 8000 meters above sea level? Here everyone is for himself, if only to survive. If you so want to prove to yourself that you are mortal, then you should try to visit Everest. Most likely, all these people who stayed there, thought it was not about them. And now they are a reminder that not everything is in the hands of man.

Nobody conducts statistics of defectors there, because they climb into mostly savages and small groups of three to five people. And the price such an ascent costs from $ 25,000 to $ 60,000. Sometimes they pay extra life, if saved on the little things. So, on the eternal guard there about 150 people remained, and maybe all 200.

Many who have been there say they feel the look of black climber resting on the back, because right on the northern route There are eight openly lying bodies. Among them are two Russians. From South located about ten. But deviate from the paved path climbers are already afraid, may not get out of there, and no one save will not climb.

Creepy bikes go among climbers who have visited that top, because she does not forgive mistakes and human indifference. IN 1996, a group of climbers from Fukuoka University of Japan climbed Mount Everest. Three were close to their route endangered climbers from India – depleted, icy people asked for help, they survived a high-altitude storm. The Japanese have passed past. When the Japanese group came down, it was already rescue no one Indians froze.

This is the alleged corpse of the very first climber to conquer Everest, which died on the descent.

It is believed that Mellory was the first to conquer the peak and died already on the descent. In 1924, Mallory with teammate Irving began ascent. The last time they were seen with binoculars in a break of clouds just 150 meters from the top. Then the clouds came together and climbers have disappeared.

They did not return back, only in 1999, at an altitude of 8290 m, the next conquerors of the summit stumbled upon many bodies that died over the last 5-10 years. Among them, Mallory was discovered. He lay on belly, as if trying to hug a mountain, his head and hands are frozen in slope.

Irving’s partner was never found, although the harness on Mallory’s body says that the couple was with each other until the very end. Rope was cut with a knife and maybe Irving could move around and leaving a comrade, he died somewhere lower on the slope.

Wind and snow are doing their job, those places on the body that are not covered with clothes, gnawed by a snowy wind to the bones and the older corpse, the less flesh remains on it. Evacuate the dead no one is going to climbers, a helicopter cannot climb such a height, and drag a carcass from 50 to 100 kilograms altruists are not located. So lie unburied climbers on slopes.

Well, not all climbers are so selfish, yet they save and do not abandon their misfortune. Only many who died are to blame yourself.

For the sake of a personal record of oxygen-free climbing, American Francis Arsentyeva already on the descent lay exhausted two days on the southern slope of Everest. Past frozen but still alive women were climbers from different countries.

Some offered her oxygen (from which she first refused, not wanting to spoil his record), others poured a few sips of hot tea, there was even a married couple who tried to gather people to drag her to the camp, but they soon left because they put their own lives at risk.

American husband, Russian climber Sergey Arsentyev, with whom they got lost on the descent, did not wait for her in the camp, and went on her searches, which also perished.
