Standing tall at a whopping height of 8848 meters, the tallest mountain in the world Everest is a matter of great pride to the Nepalese. It is named after British surveyor George Everest and is widely recognized as Everest. Indeed though, this giant has been given many names in different parts of the world and goes by, "Sagarmatha (Sagar: Sky; matha: Forehead)" to its home, Nepal. It is located in the Khumbu region of Nepal, over the Mahalangur range and borders between Nepal and China.
First conquered by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay in 1953, as glorious as reaching the summit is, it is a task of great perils and risks.
