Mount Everest with GPS only: Nepalese authorities introduce new rules

На Эверест только с GPS: власти Непала вводят новые правила

GPS trackers will help you not get lost among the highest peaks of the planet. There is nowhere on Everest without them now: everyone who plans to climb to the highest point of the Earth should take trackers with them. This rule was introduced by the Nepalese authorities.

The rental price is $10-15. GPS trackers will be issued before the hike, they can be sewn into clothes. The devices can transmit a signal even under a 20-meter layer of snow, and still do not require charging. 

In this way, the Nepalese authorities want to provide climbers with maximum safety. 

If you are interested in trekking, we suggest you study our article on which hiking route can be built in the summer.
