Despite the closing of 2020's spring climbing season due to COVID-19, Nepali activist and mountaineer Dawa Steven Sherpa, with support from the Bally Peak Outlook Foundation, led a 47-day expedition to clean the base camps of Cho Oyu, Qomolangma, known as Mount Everest in the West, as well as Lhotse and Makalu, removing 2.2 tons of waste.

Bally Peak Outlook Foundation plans an "8 X 8000M" pledge to clean up the base camps of Nepal's eight 8,000-meter mountains. Dawa's expedition from Sept 9 to Oct 23, 2020, has fulfilled Phase 1, the first half of the project, which will be fully completed over a two-year period.
