(InkStoneNews) The Mount Everest base camp in Tibet will be closed to all tourists until further notice – in order to fight sky-high litterbugs.

The base camps of the world’s highest mountain – one on the Nepalese side, one on the Chinese – are popular tourist destinations in their own right.

But now tourists have been indefinitely blocked from visiting the Tibetan camp (the Nepalese camp remains open).
