That Mount Everest has over 200 dead bodies on the mountain. Many are visible and still are as old as 1924. Its very dangerous, to try and move the bodies so they are just there. I find this sad, and also interesting.

Why is it dangerous to move them?

Can I be out there when I die? That's kinda awesome in a weird way.

Yep and they are used as guide points.

The body of David Sharp still sits in a cave, known as “Green Boots Cave”, at the top of Mount Everest. David attempted the climb in 2005 and near the top, stopped in this cave to rest. His body eventually froze in place rendering him unable to move. Over 30 climbers passed by him as he sat freezing to death. Some heard faint moans and realized he was still alive. They stopped and spoke with him. He was able to identify himself but was unable to move. Brave climbers moved him into the Sun in an attempt to thaw him but eventually, realizing David would be unable to move, were forced to leave him to die. His body still sits in the cave and is used as a guide point for other climbers nearing the summit.

Here is a link to the rest of their stories if you want to read them.

They can't get to most of them.  Rescue helicopters can't fly that high because of the thinness of the air.

For the same reason that there are dead bodies laying on mountain in the first place. It's a climb only the extremely healthy can manage and even then with the rough climate and landscape, well, shit happens.
