Given that you can already get 3G phone reception at the summit of Mt. Everest, perhaps now you’ll have a bathroom to read your emails in.
A waste-minded conservation group, Eco Himal, are calling on the Nepalese government to install some port-a-johns around Mt.

Although some might think they’re just composting, freezing temperatures can cause the stuff to stick around much longer than Eco Himal would like.
