China has canceled attempts to climb Mount Qomolangma from its side of the world’s highest peak because of fears of importing COVID-19 cases from neighboring Nepal, China’s General Administration of Sport said on Friday.

The peak also known as Mount Everest straddles the China-Nepal border, with its northern part located in Tingri County, Xigaze, in the Tibet Autonomous Region.

According to Himalayan Expedition, the only expedition organizer on the north side this climbing season, all climbers have been resting in Tingri for the past few days, and the company will not make another attempt to ascend.
