"Green Boots" is the nickname given to an unidentified male found in 1996 at Mount Everest. His body remains at the location he was found in.

His identity is speculated to be Tsewang Paljor or Dorje Morup; both subjects died in 1996. He is commonly identified in the media as Palijor, although no official identification has been made.

This body, and many others on Mount Everest cannot be retrieved because over time the bodies freeze into the mountainside, making them impossible to retrieve.
