    I thought Brazilians were happy festive people who enjoyed life...That's how I remember your country when I visited...

    If i were to go up there i would probably throw rubbish there as well, it's a long way to walk, it'd be nice to reduce some weight.. they need to place a trash bin up there, maybe that will solve the problem.

    Someone still has to carry down the trash even if there were trash bins, why not have the same people bring down what they carry up instead of paying someone to pick up after them?...People need to be responsible on our planet and when visiting such breathtakingly beautiful regions of the world or they won't be beautiful anymore...

    They can't if they are dead or dying.

    I know......but as I've been saying is that many are close to it. The death count would be higher if they have to start going to the saying "take only pictures and leave only foot prints".

    The part of the original article that mentioned excrement being up there actually made me laugh......it seems people are surprised that mountain climbers have to take a dump.

    Have you ever been above 10,000 feet on the ground?

    You are taking it to the extreme, no one is saying do not take provisions up there but be responsible and bring back what you take, very simple, I don't know that is hard to understand...When I go camping in the mountains I do not leave anything behind, no plastic, no trash, if people think they are being tasked to work to carry their own trash back with them then they do not belong up there, simple...People must be responsible...

    Well some people just shyte where ever, I've seen some people camping that will shyte right near their campsite or on a trail instead of walking off the beaten path and doing it somewhere more logical, like away from where you sleep lol...

    Yes I have, I am well aware of the dangers and challenges, that's no excuse to be irresponsible and ignorant...

    Part of the problem is the guides and businesses who make their money off these trips...Some people just do not have any business going up into that dangerous mountain but they take them up anyway...Perhaps there should be better vetting of the people going up the mountain, to keep people from dying and keep the place more pristine...

    I presume it was perfectly preserved after 40 years.
