Default Highway to Everest at a height of 17000ft

China has planned an highway to MtEverest upto the base camp at an attltude of 17000 mtrs, bringing fear to the mind of environmentalists of serious damage to the eco system which is already badly affected due to the mad rush to conquer everest every year. Is it not the right way for our BHPians to voice our protest against this construction or an happy lot to find an new heighest motorable pass to conquer with an photo finish. Pls VOTE on this subject.
