The Nepal Army has stated that some garbage is still being managed. It took the Nepal Army 55 days to clear Mount Everest-Lhotse. Similarly, it took 44 days to clean Kanchenjunga and 43 days to clean Manaslu. A Nepal Army team has also found two human skeletons this year. The team that went to clean the Kanchenjunga mountain found the skeleton. The army has stated that the legal process of both of them has been managed.

This is the third phase of the “Safa Himal campaign”. The campaign, which began in 2019, was halted in 2020 due to an outbreak of the corona virus. This campaign has been going on every year since then. The army team had collected 10 tons of garbage in 2019 and 27 tons in 2021.
