This project examines the technology western mountaineers brought to the Mt. Everest region since the 1920's, the impact on the native's society and the benefits to the climbers. We have scrutinized the transformation of communications, mountaineering equipment, and pharmaceutical technologies and their associated consequences by conducting interviews and researching scholarly literature. Through our analysis, guidelines were proposed to protect society in Nepal and foster the safety of mountaineers ascending Mt. Everest.
