We cannot let everyone go on Everest and die. If they are not physically and mentally fit it will be like a legal suicide, Permits to climb Everest will only be given to those who can prove they have already scaled mountains that are higher than 6,500 metres and that is right. Every year about 600 climbers come to Nepal hoping to reach the summit, creating a multimillion-pound industry and bringing problems of overcrowding.
Mount Everest is revered as the highest mountain in the world. Because of this, people are eager to summit the peak as a personal accomplishment. Unfortunately, this results in an influx of individuals with no climbing experience, as well as corrupt sherpas eager for a quick buck. This dangerous situation can and should be prevented by making the climb illegal.
We as humans are compelled to push ourselves and to go beyond our current existence. Despite being dangerous, climbing Mount Everest is a compulsion for many people. These people should be allowed to pursue their passions to live their life to its fullest; just as many others pursue varied interest in their own lives.
When people climb Mount Everest, they know the risks involved. There are many people that attempt the climb without being properly trained or experienced. Although these people pay with their lives, there are other people to whom climbing Mount Everest means everything. People should be allowed to take a risk knowing the consequences.
