Facts about Mount Everest

Mount Everest is the highest mountain in the world. Its height is about 8,848 meter above sea level. Mount Everest attracts many climbers some of them are highly experienced mountaineers. 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, China. 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. The mount everest was first climbed in 1953, Sir Edmund Hillary and the Tenzing Norgay  who were the first two Successful Climbers.

Overall, more than 600 climbers from 20 countries have climbed to the summit by various routes from both north and south. Climbers' ages have ranged from nineteen years to sixty. At least 100 people have perished, most commonly by avalanches, falls in crevasses, cold, or the effects of thin air.

                                                           Two Men Climbed It 21 Times

The two climbers named Apa Sherpa and Phurba Tashi hold the joint record for most Everest ascents. The team has each managed to reach the summit an impressive 21 times. Phurba reached the top of the world three times in 2007 alone, and Apa has successfully summited the mountain almost every year between 1990 and 2011.

Apa Sherpa and the Phurvba Tashi are the two climbers who climb the highest peak(Mount Everest) 21 times.

                                                                    Human Traffic Jam

Climbing Everest cost more money in spite of its expensive, more people than ever are trying to peak it. In 2012, German mountaineer Ralf Dujmovits captured a shocking image showing hundreds of climbers lining up to reach the summit. Ralf had made the decision to turn back at the South Col of the mountain due to poor weather conditions when he spotted the painfully long line.

On May 19, 2012, climbers crowding one attraction 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. Nepal specialists that year added a new fixed rope to ease congestion, and there have even been talks of installing permanent ladders

                         About 240 people have died attempting to climb Mount Everest

Avalanches, rockslides, blizzards, falls, altitude sickness, freezing temperatures, exhaustion and combinations thereof have all proven deadly, particularly in the so-called “death zone” above 26,000 feet. Since getting them down are grueling and dangerous, most of the Human dead body are remain up thereHere are some list of the dead people from the different country.

They are well preserved in the snow and apparently serve as trail markers for climbers who pass by. Everest’s deadliest day occurred in May 1996, when eight people decomposed in a storm. Yet that incident, made famous by Jon Krakauer’s book “Into Thin Air,” did nothing to stem the tide of people willing to shell out tens of thousands of dollars for a chance to tame Earth’s highest mountain. Traffic jams have even been reported near the top, and a fist fight broke out this April between three European climbers and more than 100 Sherpas, over what the guides deemed to be rude and dangerous behavior during an attempted ascent. Meanwhile, the deaths keep coming, including at least 10 last year and around eight this year.

The First Two Climbers

On May 29, 1953, 11:30 AM history was created by Edmund Hilary (New Zealand) and The Tenzing Norgay Sherpa (Nepal). These are the two peoples who climb the Mount Everest very first time.
Before Hillary and the tenzing successfully reached the summit two others also tries to reach the top of the peak in the 1924 they are the George Leigh mallory and Andrew "Sandy" Irvione. They climb the mount everest at a time when the aid of compressed air was still new and the controversial. 

Its Growing

Mount Everest which is known as the tallest mountain in the world grows about 2.5 inches in each year. In the last 26,000 years, Mount Everest has grown about a full mile in height Scientists have also determined that the Himalayas as a whole are still growing at a rate of about 2.4 inches per year, which is twice as fast as previously thought.

Mount Everest is just one of over 30 peaks in the mountains of the Himalayas that are over 24,000 feet high. Since it is the world's highest mountain, climbing to the top of Mount Everest is a goal of many mountain climbers.     

The Maiden Year  

No one else is expected to start a summit push in 2015, making this the first year since 1974 that no climber has reached the top. Just three weeks ago it looked like Kuriki might make it to the summit as the lone 2015 climber.
In 25 april 2015 a 7.8 earthquake struck Nepal and surrounding countries. that time shaking from the quake triggered an avalanche from pumori into basecamp on Mount Everst. At least twenty two people were killed, surpassing an avalanche that occured the previous year as the deadliest disaster on the mountain.

The first flight over Mount Everest

In April 1933, two people Charles Douglas – Hamilton (pilot) and David Fowler Macintyre (fellow pilot) successfully flew the Westland by plane over Mount Everest making this flight the first one to fly over this summit
