Nepali Army Successfully concludes this year’s mountain clean-up campaign

Kathmandu: The fourth edition of the Mountain Clean-Up Campaign 2023, led by the Nepali Army in collaboration with various government institutions and donor organizations, has achieved remarkable success.

Building on the previous year’s achievements of collecting over 33 tons of waste, this year’s campaign surpassed expectations with a collective determination to bring down 35 tons of waste from the peaks.

The unwavering dedication of everyone involved in the campaign was instrumental in surpassing this ambitious goal.

The campaign commenced on March 28th and focused on the cleaning efforts of four majestic mountains—Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Annapurna, and Mt. Baruntse.

A dedicated team of 97 members, including personnel from the Nepali Army and Sherpa supporters, undertook the challenging and perilous journey to collect waste from these prominent peaks.

The team’s meticulous efforts resulted in collecting a staggering 35,708 kilograms of waste, which was then transported back to Kathmandu.

The collected waste will undergo thorough verification and be handed over to the recycling partner Creasion for segregation, recycling, and proper waste management.
