Twenty-nine expedition teams (as of April 19) from different countries are attempting Mt Everest (8848m) -- the tallest peak on earth -- this spring.

According to Tourism Industry Division under the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, 315 foreign mountaineers have received permission to climb Mt Everest.

Last year, the government had permitted 335 foreign mountaineers of 30 teams. Of them 181 had reached the summit of Mt Everest.

The spring climbing season starts from mid-March and runs through May.

Officials of the division said members of most of the expedition teams have already left for Khumbu Region for acclimatization.

The government has mobilized Rs 254 million in revenue from Everest climbing permits this season. Last year, it had mobilized Rs 270 million from climbing permits.

According to officials, royalty fee to climb Mt Everest ranges from $15,000 to $70,000 per expedition. The permit fee depends on the size of the team and route. An expedition having 15 members, for example, has to pay $10,000 per person as permit fee.
