Nepal is expecting hundreds of foreigners to attempt to climb the highest Himalayan peaks despite the pandemic, APA reports citing BBC.

More than 300 foreigners have expressed interest in climbing Mount Everest this spring, the Department of Tourism says.

Japanese and Canadians teams are already trekking their way to the Everest base camp, says Mira Acharya, a director at the department.

Those wishing to make the perilous trek have to be quarantined in a hotel and test negative for Covid-19.
