The magic mountain, the one we all love so much, has become a popular destination for tourists, who are often lured by its dazzling beauty and stunning views.
But there are many risks associated with going up there.
There is the possibility of a fall and injury, or even worse, a violent fall, according to experts.
“The rocks that are used in the construction of the rockfall are not really solid and solid rocks are really hard, but there is a very high chance that you could fall down,” said Dr. David J. Tovar, who heads the National Center for Mountain Medicine and Science at the University of Utah.
“And that’s because they’re not really designed for that.”
A rockfall that is too hard could also cause serious injuries or death.
Travan says there are about 100 rockfalls around the world each year, but a rockfall could result in a death if it is not properly prepared and managed.
He said you need to use good, safe, and experienced climbers to go up the mountain, especially if you’re inexperienced and not well trained.
Travan said you also need to take precautions like wearing a helmet and carrying a rope that is well-secured.
He also recommends that climbers avoid going up cliffs or even on the same rock faces that you are climbing.
“I think the best way to protect yourself is to avoid the cliffs,” he said.
“You don’t want to get hit by a falling rock and be knocked down.
And you don’t wanna get caught in a falling boulder.”
A similar problem occurs in winter, when many people climb mountain trails, but if the weather is cold, the mountains can become treacherous.
“They have these cracks, they’re kind of a series of cracks that run up and down the sides of the mountain,” Tovary said.
“And they can actually lead to a fall, or a serious injury, so you need very good safety measures.”
