The government's Safa Himal Abhiyan 2021 program, in coordination with the Nepal Army, has completed the halfway mark of garbage collection from six mountains, including Mount Everest, Lhotse, Makalu Dhaulagiri, Pumori, and Amadablam.

The team consisted of 112 experienced Sherpas as supporters and members of the Nepal Army. The campaign, which started on April 13, has collected 21,167 kilograms of garbage in six mountains. This includes 1,868 kg of bio-degradable waste and 19,299 kg of non-biodegradable waste.

Garbage collected by the team includes discarded oxygen tanks, discarded tents, food containers, plastic, glass, aluminum, electronic waste. Apart from this, the Dhaulagiri team has also retrieved the helicopter (9N-ACR) which had crashed earlier and two human remains including mountaineering gear, from two different places. Further investigation has been started to identify and manage the deceased.
