Kathmandu, Nepal, March 13, 2020: Nepal government has decided to close down all of its Himalayan peaks including Mount Everest owing to the spreading fears of the coronavirus.

The Ministry of Turism and Civil Aviation has on Friday decided to close down all of its Himalayan peaks including Mount Everest for this climbing season.

The decision to close down the mountains has come in the mean time when hundreds of foreign climbers are now preparing to climb the mountains for the spring season that begins in June.
