Mt. Everest 8848m Print This Page

Mount Everest is also called Chomolangma, meaning “Goddess Mother of Snows" in Tibetan and Sagarmatha, meaning "Mother of the Universe" in Nepalese. The mountain is sacred to the native people.British surveyors named the peak for George Everest (properly pronounced “I-ver-ist") a Surveyor General of India in the mid-nineteenth century. Everest's current elevation is based on a GPS device implanted on the highest rock point under ice and snow in 1999 by an American expedition. Mount Everest was once surveyed at exactly 29,000 feet but the surveyors didn't think people would believe that so they added two feet to its elevation, making it 29,002 feet.Mount Everest is rising from 3 to 6 millimeters a year.

The best time to climb Everest is in early May before the monsoon season. The Southeast Ridge from Nepal, called the South Col Route, and the Northeast Ridge or the North Col Route from Tibet are the usual climbing routes. In 1978 Reinhold Messner and Peter Habeler were the first to climb Mount Everest without supplemental oxygen. In 1980 Messner made the first solo ascent, which was via a new route on the mountain's north side.
