There is no proper disposal system of garbage generated at base camp. With the establishment of langer, huge garbage of disposal plates, glass remain unattended presenting filthy look of the area. No dustbin has been put in place in the area thereby garbage remained scattered. The other arrangements for pilgrims are also in total disarray, the ticket counters for helipad service has been set up in a shed of the bus stand, they said further adding that even the power supply system in the area is also very poor as the power come at 7 pm to 7 am no light during.
