In 2014, 16 Sherpas died when the Khumbu Icefall on Mt. Everest collapsed around them. A year later, several more perished in an avalanche triggered by Nepal’s 7.8 magnitude earthquake. These accidents happened amidst growing tension between those who call the mountain home and those who come to summit. As the outfitter in this trailer says, “Every time I send the Sherpas up onto the mountain, it’s like sending them off to war.” SHERPA: Trouble on Everest premieres this Saturday on the Discovery Channel. Watch and let us know your thoughts. –Tracy Ross
