Nepal promised to re-write its mountaineering rules after at least 11 fatalities this spring on Mount Everest.

As the climbing season came to an end, veterans blamed the carnage on the world’s highest mountain on unruly pileups by rookie adventure-seekers.

This report by Vikram Roy who travelled to Kathmandu, is presented by Michael Fitzpatrick.
