We must act as the voice of the wider global climate crisis as carers and keepers of our sacred mountain environments and communities, ensuring that all future generations are able to enjoy and thrive within them.
Nimsdai has a zero-tolerance approach to the waste being generated by the increasingly popular expedition culture which is now having a detrimental impact upon those living in and around the mountains. On average, each climber generates in excess of 18 pounds of waste that includes abandoned tents, 02 canisters, food containers, discarded equipment and of course faecal matter. Pollutants from this waste are being washed into rivers by rainfall and snowmelt, contaminating water supplies for local populations posing serious health risks from disease. In addition to this we must also ensure safety for all on the mountain and put a stop to the horrendous fatalities that are occurring due to climbers accidentally clipping onto old, rotten and forgotten lines. This is all totally unacceptable.
