Mount Everest – 7 Summits

Mount Everest, known in Nepali as Sagarmatha, in Tibetan as Chomolungma and in Chinese as Zhumulangma, is Earth’s highest mountain above sea level. It is located in the Mahalangur Himal sub-range of the Himalayas. The international border between Nepal and China (Tibet Autonomous Region) runs across its summit point.

The current official elevation is 8,848 meters.

There are two main climbing routes, one approaching the summit from the southeast in Nepal (known as the “standard route”) and the other from the north in Tibet.

Difficulty:

While not posing substantial technical climbing challenges on the standard route, Everest presents dangers such as altitude sickness, weather, and wind, as well as significant hazards from avalanches and the Khumbu Icefall.
