Mount Everest is the first living memory in Kathmandu Nepal

Mount Everest from Kathmandu first appears in memory of life. Last week, these photos were taken from the famous mountain of Nepal, where it was never seen. Low air pollution means that Mount Everest appears for the first time in our lifetime.

And all this thanks to Coronavirus.


Reduced air pollution in Nepal means that Mount Everest can be seen for the first time in our lifetime, and all this is caused by the coronavirus. Many lockdown laws and restrictions around the world have significantly reduced the use of cars and public transport. Many factories and industrial buildings were also closed. In most countries of the world the air quality is improving significantly and the summit of Mount Everest from Kathmandu can be seen even though the mountain is 120 miles away. Increased air quality is mild in other mild respiratory diseases. Patients reported a significant decrease in their symptoms and had not seen their respiratory specialist in the past months.

HAMS Hospital pulmonary care specialist Raju Pangeeni said, "Many of our COPD patients do not need regular follow-up because their symptoms have diminished. Some people say they do not need oxygen therapy. Vehicle emissions are the largest source of air pollution in Kathmandu. One study reported that up to 70% of Kathmandu's road-level air pollution came from widespread vehicle use. Concerns gradually decrease. Many worry that air quality is deteriorating as life returns to normal.

However, the people of Kathmandu can now enjoy the view of the highest mountain in the world.For the first time ever from the capital of Nepal, Mount Everest is seen in living memory

Less air pollution means visibility is better than before.

The summit of Everest is 200 kilometers from Kathmandu and is now visible for the first time in decades from the capital of Nepal. 

As a result of the current lockdown restrictions that have halted many areas of society, air quality is now better than ever. Residents of Kathmandu have always loved watching the world's highest peak from their home, but the industry is already in heavy production, car use is low and air travel is practically lower than ever.

Coronaviruses have become clearer than Los Angeles' ranges, with air pollution in London significantly reduced. We have found it to be good for infections. The event provided a snapshot of what a low-carbon community looks like. The World Health Organization estimates that approximately 3 million people die from air pollution related illnesses each year. It has been reported that up to 80% of people living in cities suffer from unsafe air quality.


So what does this mean for the future? Will this forced experiment change the way we think about climate change?

Last week, the summit of Mount Everest was seen for the first time from Kathmandu. According to a Nepal Times report, the above photo taken from Chobar was not possible by Abhishan Gautam, the world's highest peak, more than 120 miles away.

Due to a global lockdown to prevent the spread of coronaviruses, vehicles are off the road and the industry is stagnant, resulting in a significant reduction in air pollution and clean air over Nepal.

The hospital for respiratory diseases has deteriorated for the past few months due to pollution and poor air quality in the area. "Many of our COPD patients do not need regular follow-up because their symptoms have subsided. Some people say they no longer need oxygen therapy.

Vehicle emissions are the largest air pollution in the Kathmandu Valley, and a study estimates that up to 70% of all particulate matter at the street level. Once the lockdown measures are lifted, people can return to their normal lifestyles and avoid social contact as never before, and it can last a lifetime, again drowning in fog. For now, however, Kathmandu residents can relish its glory. Kathmandu is the capital of Nepal and the second largest metropolis in the region with a population of about 2.5 million.

Why is Nepal really famous for mountains?

The mountains of Nepal are divided into different categories based on their height and under whose authority.
The Ministry of Tourism is responsible for over 6,500 meters of trekking peaks, while the Nepal Mountaineering Society is responsible for the so-called trekking peaks. The height of these peaks ranges from 5,800 meters to 6,584 meters, and calls for climbing skills and climbing gear and should not be taken lightly despite the misleading title. Permits are not required for expeditions on peaks below 5800 m, although other types of permits are required to enter certain areas. All trips require a refundable garbage collection, and liaison officers also have to live on 6,500-meter-high cliffs. Best time for mountaineering is when the weather is good before the monsoon, especially at high altitudes, but the visibility can be limited with the peaking conditions of the monsoons.\



Autumn is good for slightly shorter peaks, winter is less cold, and spring is subject to early thaw seasonal snowstorms.
However, in this age of global warming and climate change, the climate cannot be predicted as it was in the past. Today it is possible to book a business trip in Nepal, try a large mountain or try the trekking peak with one of the many Nepali trekking agents. If a free trip is required to attempt any legally open summits, they must read the policies and procedures legally required under the current Nepal Tourism Act (Rules for Mountaineering).
It is located mainly in the Himalayas, but also in parts of the Indo Ganges Plain.
Nepal is fortunate to have eight of the world's tallest mountains, including Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world. People who die with mountaineering usually seek out the best cliffs. The most important of these are the mountains in this country. Some people prefer to live an adventurous life by getting stuck in the white snow on the cliffs and finding their way, for them, the mountains of Nepal.

Reaching to the Mt. Everest, but there are other technical challenges, such as the Lowes, or you can take a few more 326 climbing peaks awaiting you! The Nepal Himalayas are the most formidable mountain range in the world, one third of which is 3,500 meters high. The world's eight highest peaks bordering Nepal are: Everest, Kanchenjunga, Lotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Dhaulagiri, Manas and Annapurna, which are more than 8,000 meters above sea level.


The first ascent of their journey through the French expedition with Maurice Herzog in the 1950s, Everest was first called the 1953 British expedition led by Edmund Hillary and apart from these eight huge peaks, there are 326 other mountains in Nepal that are open to mountaineering and 103 of them have never been reached before.
Nepal offers more opportunities for climbers than any other country in the world, and throws endless challenges on them, including less spectacular trekking peaks, even if you love climbing The history of Nepal ascent begins with the early explorers of British India who fought the challenges of climbing high peaks and virgin peaks where no man could ever set foot. By the 1960s, Nepal's trekking and mountaineering industry was well-established, providing all the logistics with porters and guides to private companies for a full-time trip in the mountains. There are many organizations that take care of every aspect of mountaineering today and all climbers need to be in good condition physically and mentally, ready to take on the challenge and not worry about equipment and supplies.

Although there are many other species in the service today, they are commonly called sherpas. Lass, Ama Dablam and Manas are also frequented by trekking peaks such as the Mira, Island and Yala peaks. There are also climbers who are ready to climb the virgin peaks from time to time, opening up new peaks, they do not want to climb first!
While Annapurna, Manas and Kanchenjunga are listed as conservation areas, Sagarmatha (Everest), Longtang and Shi-Foxxundo (Dalpo) are national parks, while other mountain areas do not fall into these categories, but They are close to the northern border of Nepal. The basic amenities and accessibility of Sagarmatha, Annapurna, Manas and Longtang are well developed and easy for climbers and pilgrims to make quick progress in their base camps, including. It is still very remote, where rescue or assistance is difficult or unlikely from outside sources, and access to these areas is complicated and sometimes difficult. Campaigns in those fields require completely different approaches, commitment levels, and organizational efficiency to succeed to the maximum level they choose. For a relatively small country, Nepal has tremendous geographical diversity and it offers excellent geographical features in just 230 km from north to south.


India lands in the south, east and west and north of China, Nepal has the highest elevation in the world.
The geographical difference in the country is from the summit of the icy mountain peaks, the Gokyo RI tops the sky at 5,357 meters, and the 8,848 meters around Mount Everest, with desert-like deserts such as dry, dry and gray rocks.
