Mount Everest: The lethal historical past of the world’s highest peak

Reaching 29,032 toes (8,849 meters) above sea degree, Mount Everest is the very best mountain on Earth. Positioned within the Mahalangur Himal part of the Himalayas, the mountain’s summit straddles the border separating Tibet and Nepal.

Who have been the primary explorers to climb Everest?

Mount Everest has two principal climbing routes: the southeast ridge from Nepal, and the north ridge from Tibet. Although the north ridge route is shorter, at present most climbers use the southeast ridge route, which is technically simpler.
