In the fifth episode of the Mountain Malarkey Podcast, Andy and Dave talk about the impact climate change has had on high altitude trekking but also how positive changes are making a HUGE difference in the Himalayas and beyond.
Head Yeti Andy has seen firsthand the changes in the Khumbu region since his first trek as well as Dave. The guys discuss recent changes that have made a big environmental impact in Nepal as well as ways EverTrek has attempted to make a dent in helping the environment on each trek.
Things the guys discuss:
- How each EverTrekker can make a difference on each trek
- The environmental history of Everest, especially the Khumbu glacier
- How to minimise your impact on a trek at high altitude
“Don't have to be Greta Thunberg to make a difference”
“It's revolutionised the way I drink water at altitude”
“I call BS on that as soon as I heard it”
