Kathmandu. The Nepalese government has announced that from January 1, 2020, most plastic packaging and plastic bottles will be banned around the mountain. The ban applies to the Khumbu Pasang Lhamu community and to plastic items less than 30 micrometers thick.
In 2019, more than 10 tons of garbage were collected, which is created by thousands of mountaineers.
