This is how tracking of mountain climbers will be done through GPS technology

It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. The full project of GPS tracking has not been decided yet.

The government had decided to use GPS tracking under the Department of Tourism to monitor the safety of mountaineers and the claims of fake climbing. But it is not being implemented.

"As soon as the decision was made, the preparations started. The work could not go ahead due to various reasons including the corona epidemic, 'said Taranath Adhikari, director-general of the department.

However, the department has stated that the required server has been prepared and the equipment has also arrived. At the same time, the work of the pilot project will start now, said Director General Gautam.

He said that the pilot project of GPS tracking will be started next spring. The department had allocated Rs 5 million for the purchase of 20 devices for the pilot project.

However, Surya Prasad Upadhyaya, director of the mountaineering branch, said that he was not sure when the test survey would start. It has been decided to survey a limited number of climbers for GPS tracking tests.

However, no concrete decision has been taken yet as to which climbers will be surveyed, 'said Upadhyaya. Under the pilot project, a limited number of climbers will be sent on the climb with GPS equipment with their consent.

Based on that, Upadhyaya said that they will move forward by evaluating the impact of GPS tracking. ‘When it comes to GPS tracking, its use ranges from the effect to the client's privacy. Therefore, discussions will be held only after the survey under the pilot project on how to move it forward safely and effectively, 'he added.

The department is confident that the GPS tracking system will help in preventing misconduct in mountaineering, including the safety of climbers. The GPS device used by the department will work with a temperature of minus 45 degrees Celsius and can be charged from solar with a battery lasting up to 15 days.
