A problem with dying on Mount Everest is that there’s a good chance you’ll stay on the mountain, as it’s simply too hard and dangerous to retrieve dead bodies. This is especially true near the summit, which is also the most dangerous leg of the climb. That means when climbers attempt to scale the world’s highest mountain, they’ll come across some of these bodies. But what’s morbidly fascinating is that these bodies are often used as distance markers to the summit.
