A Traffic Jam At The Top of Mount Everest

If you thought 490 during rush-hour was bad check out the traffic jam at the top of Mt. Everest.

Climber Nirmal Purjal posted this to Facebook this week showing a lot of climbers in the 'Death Zone' of Everest, an area where the oxygen is very limited and therefore very dangerous.

In fact, three people died on Mount Everest Thursday, bringing the total death toll to seven for the week.

The increased deaths on the mountain are likely due to the increased number of permits and long traffic jams, tour organizers say. Mountaineers wishing to summit Mount Everest must pay $11,000 each for the spring season, according to the BBC.
