June 14, 2019 -- In diesem Frühjahr war der Mount Everest noch mehr überfüllt als in allen früheren Jahren seit der Erstbesteigung 1953 von Sir Edmund Hillary und seinem Sherpa Tenzing Norgay. 2019 erreichten unglaubliche 891 Bergsteiger den Gipfel, es kam zur gefährlichen Staus auf den engen Routen bis zum Gipfel des höchsten Berges der Welt.

The crowds on Mount Everest, which have been causing chaos for years, are now becoming a serious health hazard.

In 2019, there were only five days where winds were under 50km/h, compared with 11 days in 2018. The combined effect of more people making the attempt and fewer good climbing days intensified the bottlenecks and created long queues of climbers attempting to scale the mountain.

Many people suffering from altitude sickness could not descend to seek medical attention. In total, there were 11 deaths on Everest this season, making it one of the deadliest in its chequered history.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era, coming soon…

And it will be worth the wait! The Graphic News website is undergoing a complete redesign. The new site will not only see improvements in terms of speed and user experience, but will also include many new features. For example, existing subscribers will be able to manage their accounts online via a group dashboard, and add selected graphics to lists for project planning (and which can be shared across the group).

Existing users will need to register individually - we’ll be sending instructions to our main contacts at each group and will be on hand to help you through the process, which we hope will be seamless!


If you don’t already have an account but are interested in the service, just click on the button below and we’ll get back to you within 24 hours.
