Communication has always been a problem in such a remote area as Nepal.The telephones nearest to base camp ,which is at 17000 feet ,are a four-day walk away .these days,most trekkers(people who go on long and difficult walk)use satellite phones to contact their friends and family at home.Recently ,someone had a better idea. A Sherpa,the grandson of a man from Nepal who was in the first expedition fifty yaears ago,plans to make an Internet café at the base camp of Everest.This will be the highest Internet café in the world .he is waiting for permission from the government to go ahead with the project .The money from the café will go to a project to clean up the tones of garbage left behind by the tens of thousands of tourists that come to Nepal every year.
Each of these tourists has his or her own reasons for climbing Everest.For many,the more challenging the mountain,the more they like it.These know they risk their lives ,but they don’t mind.However,for many extreme climbers today,reaching the top of Mount Everest is not the challenge it once was,because too many people have done it.Many climbers want to go where no one has dared.Though it may be ture that Mount Everest has lost some of its mystique,it is still the highest mountain on Earth.For this reason,it will probably always attract many of the world’s best climber
