Nepal has imposed new restrictions on climbing Mount Everest, banning solo climbers, double amputees and blind people from climbing it.

The new rules, which were set after a series of deadly accidents, are now being criticized by several sources, including Hari Budha Magar, a soldier who lost both legs in Afghanistan and is currently training to climb the mountain. “Nepal should be proud of me, not banning me,” he wrote on Facebook.
