China is making a big push to make the Chinese-side climb of Mount Everest a major tourist destination.

While Nepal has placed restrictions on climbing the mountain recently, China has taken the opposite track, hoping to siphon off some tourists from their neighbor. So far it seems to be working, but Nepal has history on its side, though that doesn't mean there isn't a big future for climbing Everest from the China side.
