The authorities decided to suspend the reception of foreign mountaineering teams in the spring of 2020 due to the worldwide breakout of coronavirus.
The Internet spread "Everest scenic area permanently closed". According to official confirmation, the news is not true. And, the rumor that there is a lot of rubbish on the north slope is very absurd.
A 2nd railway line from Chengdu to Lhasa is underway that will wind through some of the world’s most mountainous and inhospitable territory and likely take a decade to complete. Currently the train from Chengdu to Lhasa still goes the longer route via Xining, which takes about 43hrs. The planned 2nd railway will go directly from Chengdu to Lhasa, through the mountains from Kangding in Sichuan to Nyingchi in Tibet. Once completed, the travel time will be cut from 43 to about 13 hours.
