Melting glaciers are exposing the bodies of dead climbers on Mount Everest

Melting glaciers on Mount Everest are exposing the bodies of hundreds of climbers who have died while trying to scale the peak. 

Almost 300 people are thought to have died on the 29,000-ft mountain and many of their bodies are extremely well preserved in the cold climate - even decades after they died. 

Many are still buried under the Himalayan ice but mountaineering experts believe global warming is starting to reveal them. 

As this year's spring climbing season begins, some of the bodies are now being removed from the Chinese side of the slopes, BBC News reported.
