In order to create awareness about the ecology and environment of the mountain, a separate section is displayed beside the equipment section where garbage collected from Mount Everest between the year 2000 and 2003 demonstrates gloomy picture of possible environment degradation if caution of preserving the environment is neglected. Crossing this section takes the visitors to yet another section named Imaging Everest where plenty of photographs of British expeditions to Mount Everest from 1921 to 1953 are showcased. These pictures are donated by Royal Geographical Society.
