Know the Everest FACTS
Everest is recorded as being over 60 million years old mountain and was first identified in 1841 by Sir George Everest. Initially named ad Peak 15, later in 1865, they renamed Mount Everest after Sir George Everest.
Mount Everest lies on the border of both Nepal and China/Tibet from the South and north, respectively. So mountaineers have an opportunity to choose either to explore/climb Everest from both sides. However, to experience more adventure and long holiday hiking trips, most travelers prefer the Nepal side, but summiting Everest from Northside is considered a safer route.
Mount Everest is called Chomolungma in Tibet and Sagarmatha in Nepal. Chomolungma refers to the mother goddess of the universe, and Sagarmatha means goddess of the sky.
