World-known Mount Everest has a Tibetan name -- “ Chomolungma”, which means “the Goddess of the universe”. It’s the main peak of the Himalayas and proved to be the highest mountain on earth by the official record of 8,848m (29,029 feet). With snow and ice covering all year round, it appears like a silver pyramid from a distance. For centuries, it has been standing firmly and watching the world quietly.
People want to conquer Mt. Everest as it’s the nearest place to heaven. But due to the extreme adverse natural conditions, this dream had been stopped until May 29, 1953, the New Zealander Edmund Hillary and the Sherpa guide Tenzing Norgay finally made the first successful attempt at the summit. Thousands of adventurers have been inspired and come to challenge themselves. Thus, Mt. Everest turns into a trekking or mountaineering destination for all adventure lovers. more info: Everest base camp trek map
