A team of 20 elite Nepali climbers venture into the Death Zone of Mount Everest to restore their sacred mountain and the contaminated water source of 1.3 billion people. They ascend the highest point on the planet to the 150 bodies of deceased climbers and 100,000 pounds of rubbish that remain on the high slopes of Everest. This is the self-documented story of their life-threatening journey.

    Hard not to admire the Sherpa and the desire to clean up a sacred place for them, but in practical terms they risked their lives to retrieve dead bodies and trash for money. The effect on the water supply is completely overstated, and the global warming message was clearly coached. For better or for worse these men risk their lives to get rich foreigners up and down the mountain, and this was another such mission. RIP Namgyal Sherpa who died several years after this film on another expedition.

    After watching this film I have lost all respect for people who have touted having made the summit. In the future, ALL climbers should be heavily taxed and all their gear should be weighed- if they leave anything on the mountain, then they should be heavily fined in addition.Excellent film.
