I came across this incredibly sad and interesting article yesterday about the unsettling story (or possible myth) of several hikers ascending Mount Everest who walked right past a freezing man on their trail up to the top of the mountain. The part of the mountain in which this happens is known as “The Death Zone”, where oxygen is scarce and the conditions are frigid. Many people simply do not make it up to the top nor do they make it back down. Instead, their bodies are frozen in a state up there where they become grim reminders for other¬†trekkers of the dangers of doing the same climb. If you’re at all curious to see what these bodies look like, you can check out some of them here.
