June 14, 2019 -- En la temporada de ascenso de primavera 2019, el Monte Everest se congestionó más que en cualquier otro año desde que fue conquistado por primera vez, en 1953, por Edmund Hillary y Tenzing Norgay. En 2019, un récord de 891 escaladores llegaron a la cumbre, llevando a un congestionamiento peligroso en las rutas limitadas de ascenso al pico más alto del mundo .

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!
