Mt. Everest has approximately 200 dead bodies lying on the mountain. It is nearly impossible for recovery of a body off the mountain. The “death zone” is 26,000 feet. The air there is extremely thin. Lack of oxygen leaves a climber bewildered and weak and can cause them to pass out and get frostbite. Many people lose their lives here. The bodies are left in the same positions where they died and have even become landmarks for other travellers. The top photograph shows a body which has been given the name “green boots” and has been there since 1996.
