Nepal has now set a new rule to all potential Everest climbers; they all have to scale a peak of 6500m above sealevel or higher, before they can acquire a permit for Mount Everest.

Different newspapers have written various articles about this.

One of the best articles is this:

“All climbers seeking a permit for Everest must have prior high altitude mountaineering experience and demonstrable training, a high-level commission for the Nepalese government has ruled.

The recommendation was issued by the body charged with looking at the issue of high-altitude safety after one of the deadliest seasons in recent years on Everest, which was blamed on inexperience and crowding near the summit.

Eleven climbers were killed or went missing on the 8,850-metre (29,035 ft) mountain in May, nine on the Nepalese side and two on the Tibetan side.”
