Nepal looks to lease out unclimbed Himalayan mountains

Nepal is considering an innovative plan to lease out some of the country's remote and unclimbed Himalayan peaks to private companies in return for a fee.

The scheme, which includes hiring out peaks and cutting mountaineering fees, would open up unvisited mountains to local and foreign companies to attract more climbers.

The BBC's Anbarasan Ethirajan has this report.
