This year we celebrate 70 years since the conquest of Everest, by Edmund Hillary and Tensing Norgay

Reinhold Messner, the first to have climbed the 14 peaks of more than 8 000 metres without oxygen, notes that the mountains are transforming before our eyes into an immense sports field. Mountaineering would have become a consumer good like any other. I returned to the slopes of this mountain and noticed the invasion of the tallest trash can in the world. An invasion which is spreading across all 8 000 metres of the Himalayas. New mountaineers are urbanizing the mountains.

Tourists occupy the place!
