Oh and some people got married up there.

This article seems to suggest it was just a busy time of year and ignore the fact that they were probably just a load of wedding guests.



A Nepalese couple have exchanged wedding vows on top of Mount Everest, the first people ever to marry there.

They briefly took off their oxygen masks and put on plastic garlands, while the groom symbolically applied red powder on the bride's forehead.

Moni Mule Pati and Pem Dorjee Sherpa were part of the Rotary Centennial Everest Expedition earlier this week.

They had kept the plan secret as there was no guarantee they would reach the top of the world's highest peak.

Arriving back in Kathmandu, the bride said it would not have been possible to meet all the religious requirements, so they did what they could with what was available.
