Kathmandu: Mt Everest, the world’s highest peak, on Wednesday witnessed a traffic-jam like situation as over 200 mountaineers attempted to reach the summit point, a media report said on Wednesday.

Climbers from many countries reached above the Camp IV early morning and complained of waiting for more than two hours in queues on their way to the summit point of the 8,848-metre peak, the Himalayan Times reported. Gyanendra Shrestha, a liaison officer deployed by the Tourism Ministry at the Everest base camp said that the exact number of the climbers was not yet known.
