The youngest Australian on Mount Everest described the dangerous conditions on the mountain after eleven climbers died in nine days.

Alyssa Azar, who reached the highest peak in the world at the age of 19, said she was shocked to see the poignant images of Everest climbers step across a corpse while forming a huge line in front of the top.

The 22-year-old from Brisbane appeared Today on Wednesday morning with a request to the Nepalese government to regulate the number of permits issued.

& # 39; It's hard to look at that, I absolutely think something needs to be done. I think there are too many people. Nepal, like the Tibetan party that is already doing that, should start limiting permits, & she said.

& # 39; There are only so many people who can climb on the north side every year, but that is unregulated in Nepal, on the south side, where we see many of these images. & # 39;

Everest & # 39; Death Zone & # 39;

The death zone is the name used by mountain climbers for high altitudes where there is insufficient oxygen available for people to breathe – this is usually more than 8,000 meters – 26,247ft.

Most of the more than 200 climbers who have died on Mount Everest have died in the death toll area – often in the descent – where experts say there is a risk of switching due to reaching the summit.

At the summit of Mount Everest, the average person takes in about 30 percent of the oxygen in the air they would take at sea level.

That is why a person who was used to breathing in air at sea level could only be present for a few minutes before he became unconscious.

Most climbers have to carry oxygen bottles to reach the top.

Those who suffer in the & # 39; death zone & # 39; quickly become weak and lose the ability to think straight and struggle to make decisions, especially under stress.

Climbers have described some who are in the & # 39; death zone & # 39; died as seated to rest and never to rise again.

Officials have issued 367 permits to foreigners and another 14 to Nepalese mountaineers to climb Everest this year, according to a government liaison officer in the base camp.

Azar, who reached the top after her third attempt in 2016, climbed the exact ridge line but said it was & # 39; nothing & # 39; looked like the shocking photos & # 39; s.

The creepy photo shows a long line of adventurers stepping over a rope attached to a frozen corpse hanging almost 9,000 meters above sea level above the mountain.

Azar explained that climbers have a & # 39; 24 hour time limit & as soon as they reach Camp 4, also known as the & # 39; death zone & # 39; where there is limited oxygen.

& # 39; So if you haven't reached the top within 12 hours, you have to turn around because you run out of oxygen, & # 39; she said.

& # 39; People often die there due to exhaustion and lack of oxygen. So it's already dangerous without having to stop for other climbers. & # 39;

The influx of people has caused mountaineers to wait in long queues, putting them at risk of becoming exhausted and running out of oxygen.

On Monday, 62-year-old Christopher John Kulish, an American lawyer, suddenly died on his descent to South Col after scaling the normal Southeast Ridge route.

Just two days later, Australian explorer Gilian Lee was rescued by alpine experts after he found himself unconscious on the mountain at an altitude of 7,500 meters.

Azar added that some climbers even dare to go on the dangerous expedition, even though they have very little experience, while some do not know how to put on their gear.

& # 39; You really have a feeling when you go there, that you take control of your life, & # 39; she said.

Everest climbers have now come forward and describe the & # 39; so-like & # 39; top conditions with & # 39; inexperienced & # 39; climbers who push and push.

American Ed Dohring, from Arizona, described a large group that was already at the top, some of which & # 39; very rude and unruly & # 39; and & # 39; basically pushed so that they could take better photos of themselves & # 39 ;.

Elia Saikaly, from Ottawa, Canada, set the disturbing image to warn climbers of the danger of taking the highest mountain in the world.

He subtitled his grim photo: & # 39; Here we were all, chasing a dream and under our feet there was a lifeless soul. Is this what Everest has become? & # 39;

The route on the mountain includes several major obstacles and a huge moving glacier near the base camp, as shown on the map above
