Number of bodies on Everest
How many bodies are there on Everest?
Over 200 bodies
It is important to know the fact that as of mid-2011, Mount Everest has claimed the lives of over 216 known mountain climbers. The mountain made many victims. Not too many people know the fact that the area above 26,000 feet is called â€œthe Death Zoneâ€. Needless to say, in this area breathing fresh oxygen from canisters is necessary for all but the most experienced climbers. Keep in mind that the atmospheric pressure is about a third of that at sea level.
