Mt. Everest has around 200 dead bodies on the mountain. It is nearly impossible for recovery of a body off the mountain. Most of the bodies are in the same exact position they were when they died. Perfectly preserved in time because of the cold. Along the route up to the summit climbers will pass all these bodies. There are bodies over 50 years old that look like they were placed there yesterday.
The "death zone" is 26,000 feet. Air is so thin that there is no margin for error. Immediate frostbite will happen. Lack of oxygen leaves climber bewildered and weak. Cost for one to go on a trip is $25,000.
Several bodies are given names. This one is "green boots". Many of the bodies are now landmarks along the way up. "green Boots" has been there since 1996.
“PLEASE don’t leave me,” the dying woman cried.
There was an American flag placed on this woman years later and a note from her family. Two people found the woman alone and barely alive but could do nothing to help her. They thought about that moment everyday and saved up all their money for 8 years to make a return trip and give her a proper "burial".
Here's one of George Mallory where he has lain since falling to his death in 1924
Bodies lay exactly where the climber last took a "rest". Most of the time they take a rest and dont wake up.
