Photo & caption @adrianballinger // Everest Base Camp on the North (Tibetan) Side of the mountain, today, April 19. It's an otherworldly place - individual team camps are spread across this huge floodplain at 17,000 feet at the foot of the Rongbuk Glacier. One thing the North Side is not is overcrowded. We estimate between 200-250 total climbers (paying members and high altitude workers). With increasing government regulation and professionalism on this side, we are looking forward to a stellar season! Follow the Snap story (#everestnofilter) for discussion on some of the improvements (generators banned, trash and human waste management and cleanup efforts, unlimited hydro-power and fast internet for all teams at bc, active and present liaison officers managing teams, centralized and expert rope-fixing, and requiring prior 8000-meter peak experience of Chinese nationals, the largest demographic on the mountain). Plenty of issues to address as well of course! But that's for another post. #everest2017

@tina_koda at the nepal side you will see close to 800 people. The 200 number is for tibet or china side.
