尼泊尔正在考虑对攀登珠穆朗玛峰者的年龄加以限制,禁止那些它认为年龄过小或过老的人攀登世界最高峰。该国因为没有管理好这一巨额产业而受到批评。以下是 Joanna Jolly 发来的报道:

Ever since Mount Everest opened to commercial expeditions in the 1990s, climbers have sought to establish world records on the mountain.

The youngest person to reach the summit was a 13-year-old from the United States. The oldest climber was 80.

But now Nepal says it wants to limit climbers to between the ages of 18 and 75 in order to better manage the mountain, which has suffered from overcrowding. It's also considering banning anyone with disabilities.

The Nepalese government makes millions of dollars a year from the Everest climbing industry, but recently it's come under criticism for poor management.

In 2014 the mountain was closed after 16 sherpas died in an accident. And this year the climbing season was also called off after a massive earthquake triggered an avalanche that killed 18 people.
