Your Chance To Edit

Himalayas - the highest mountain in the world – and that is the point. Everest or Sagarmatha - the highest point of the Earth attracts the attention of thousands of people simply because "it's there." Finding the way to the highest point on Earth became a climbing epic long time ago, and the Himalayas became the "sacred ground."

The highest mountain in the world Mount Everest has the shape of a three-sided pyramid with the most deprived snow steep southern slope.
From the South Everest connected to Mount Lhotse (8516 m) with the South Col (7906 m), sometimes called the South summit. From the northern side North Col (7020 m) connects Mount Everest with Changzhou (7543 m). From the east side Steeply to the east impassable east wall Kangashung (3350 m).

DID YOU KNOW (10) Edit Add

• On May 19, 2012, climbers crowding one landmark near the summit faced a two-hour wait. In the course of just half a day, 234 people managed to reach the peak—but four people died, raising major concerns over the climbing process.


• There is 66% less oxygen in each breath on the summit of Everest than at sea level.


• It takes 40 days to climb Mt. Everest in order for the body to adjust to the high altitude.


• There are 18 different climbing routes on Everest.


• A research team discovered in 1994 that Everest continues to grow approximately 4 millimeters (0.16 in) every year. The Indian subcontinent was originally an independent landmass that collided with Asia, forming the Himalayas, and the continental plates are still moving, pushing the mountains ever higher.


• Everest is littered an estimated 50 tons of waste, with more left behind each season. The slopes are strewn with disregarded oxygen bottles, climbing equipment, and plenty of human feces.


• On May 29, 1953 history was created by Edmund Hilary and Tenzing Norgay when the duo successfully scaled the highest and dreaded mountain peak of the world.


• At the age when kids are busy fighting over chocolates and making excuses for no homework, this brave boy- Jordon Romero created history! In May 2010, Jordon Romero got worldwide attention by becoming the youngest person to scale Mount Everest at the age of just 13 years.


• In April 1933, two people Charles Douglas – Hamilton (pilot) and David Fowler Maclnytre (fellow pilot) successfully flew the Westland PV-3 biplane over mount Everest making this flight the first one to fly over this summit.


• Dead Bodies. There are more than 200 corpses of climbers on Mount Everest which are used by other climbers as a way point to decide whether they are on right path or not.
