\"There are more people on Mount Everest than they should be,\" said Kur Bahadur gulon, secretary general of the Nepal Mountaineering Association, an umbrella group for all expedition operators in Nepal.
11 people have died this season, the highest number since 2015.

Most people are considered to have altitude sickness, which is caused by low oxygen volume in high altitude areas and can lead to headaches, vomiting, shortness of breath and mental disorder. googletag. {});

Rich elite mountaineering enthusiasts, Nepal\'s booming mountaineering market has reduced the cost of exploration and opened Mount Everest for enthusiasts and adventure enthusiasts --seekers.
They are required to have a doctor\'s record that they are in good health, but do not prove their endurance at such extreme heights.
Because of the altitude, climbers only have a few hours to reach the top of the mountain, and when the lungs are full of liquid, they have the possibility of edema.

Mount Everest is known as the \"death zone \".

Nepal does not have any regulations on how many licenses should be issued, so anyone with a doctor\'s certificate can get a permit for $11,000 (£8,680)
Mohan Krishna Sapkota, Minister of Tourism and Civil Aviation, said.
According to the government, licenses have been issued to 381 people this year, the highest number ever.
Accompanied by them, the number of tour guides from the Nepalese ethnic Sherpas community is equal.
Some climbers were initially suspended from their permits in 2014.
When 16 Sherpa guides were killed in an avalanche, other Sherpas effectively went on strike, and their support as guides and porters was crucial.
Another factor is that China has this year restricted the number of clean permits issued to routes on the north side of Mount Everest for its territory. up.
The north and south sides of the mountain are scattered with empty oxygen tanks, food packaging and other sundries.
Instead of blaming the overcrowding on the weather, the equipment and the lack of supplemental oxygen, Mr. Sapkota blamed the deaths this year on the weather, the equipment and the lack of supplemental oxygen.
\"People have been concerned about the number of climbers on Mount Everest, but not because of traffic jams,\" Mr Sapkota said in Namche, as the town of Mount Everest\'s travel staging site. googletag. {});
But he said: \"Next season, we will try to have double ropes in areas below the top of the mountain so that the flow of climbers can be better managed.
The Nepalese government will encourage more tourists and climbers to come \"for happiness and fame\" instead of limiting the number of people trying to reach Mount Everest, saptoka said.
Pakistani mountaineer and travel company boss Mirza Ali, who boarded Mount Everest for the fourth time this month, said the approach was flawed.
\"Everyone wants to be on top of the world,\" he said, but tourists are unprepared for the extreme situation at Everest, which endangers the industry as a whole.
\"There are not enough checks to issue the license,\" said Mr Ali . \".
\"The more people come, the more licenses, the more business there is.
But on the other hand, it is also a big risk because it is life-consuming.
