Frozen Dead Climbers Celebrated by New Pop Up Display at Everest Base Camp.

When hopeful summiteers arrived at Everest Base Camp last month they were met by a controversial new exhibit. And no, it’s not the billboard featuring the mountain’s first two climbers Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hilary.

The pop up display titled ‘Thou Shall Not Pass’ enables base camp visitors to take their picture with a dead, frozen climber of expeditions past. The Pasang Lhamu rural municipality, which funded the project, hopes to encourage people to rethink their trip to the crowed launching point and leave after they paid their non refundable deposits.


“We wanted a display that would honor the brave men and women who’ve lost their lives trying to scale the mountain, while also highlighting the danger of eminent death in order to reduce the sheer number of people living at basecamp that are overwhelming available resources,” said a spokesperson for the rural municipality. “Instead, the response has been overwhelmingly positive with people having selfie parties, a DJ, even serving frozen jello shots.”


Reports indicate there is already a line a half of kilometer long to have their picture taken at the display.


Due to the response, a new display honoring the region’s newest permanent resident - plastic microfibers - is planned for later in the year.
