FILE – In this Oct. 27, 2011 file photo, the last light of the day sets on Mount Everest as it rises behind Mount Nuptse as seen from Tengboche, in the Himalaya's Khumbu region, Nepal. The Everest climbing season began March 2014 with new rules that require climbers to bring down at least eight kilograms (17.6 pounds) of their personal garbage, and more security officials at the mountain's base camp to help climbers. More than 4,000 climbers have scaled the 8,850-meter (29,035-foot) summit since it was conquered in 1953 by Edmund Hillary and his Sherpa guide Tenzing Norgay. Over the years, climbers have left tons of garbage on the slopes on the mountain, and some have called it the "world's highest garbage dump." (AP Photo/Kevin Frayer, File)
