Bottle ban inside the Park

Empty beer and soft drinks bottled were once a major environmental problem in Khumbu. There used to be piles of empty beer bottles at Syangboche airport waiting to be airlifted to Kathmandu by helicopters. Considering this problem, the National Park in coordination with SPCC, youth clubs and other NGOs took an initiative to ban bottle beer and soft drinks inside the Park. This initiative is still very effective and now aluminum cans have replaced the glass bottles.
