An aerial view of Mount Everest mountain range

Responding to the tragic events of last year, when the new climbing season opens on Mt Everest next month climbers will follow a new route from base camp.

As a result the Nepalese Government are seeking to improve safety this season. Click on the link to find out more : http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-31509212
