But Nepal's Mount Everest will be open to visitors again next month. The news pleases mountain climbers from around the world.

He said it is not a "responsible time" to lead trips to Nepal because of the country's weak healthcare system.

他说,由于尼泊尔医疗体系薄弱,现在带团登山是不负责任的行为。

Ballinger added, "The last thing we want to do is put our climbers in harm's way or create a rescue situation on the mountain if someone were to get sick that would put others in danger."

巴林格表示:“我们最不愿意做的事就是让登山客陷入险境,或是在山上制造营救的局面。如果有人生病,就会把其他人置于危险当中。”
