Chomolungma (Everest)
Tibet, Banco Vivorillo

Everest is the highest peak of the planet, therefore it is often called the "roof of the world." The English name "Everest" was appropriated relatively recently, in 1856 in honor of the head of the geodesic service of British India, Sir George Everest, at the same time the height measurement data made by Indian mathematician and topographer Radhanat Sikdar were first published. Nepalese call the peak of Sagarmatha, which means "mother of the gods", and the Tibetan version - Jomolungma - means "the divine mother of life."
Everest is located in the Himalayas on the border of China and Nepal and is part of the ridge Mahalangur-Himal. The southern peak of the mountain is located on the border of Nepal and the Tibet Autonomous Region, is part of the Sagarmatha National Park, the northern peak with a height of 8848 meters lies on the territory of China. The shape of Everest resembles a three-sided pyramid, the strongest winds often blow at the top, and the temperature at night drops to -60 degrees Celsius, so even with modern equipment and equipment in the arsenal, climbing to the top is still extremely difficult.
The first ascent to Everest took place in 1953, it was made by New Zealand mountain climber Edmund Hillary, after which 4,042 people visited the summit. The youngest climber, American Jordan Romero, was only 13 years old, and the oldest climber, Japanese Yuitira Miura, was 80. Since the first ascent to the present, 200 people have died on Everest, and yet, about 500 people try to storm the summit every year. Climbing lasts about two months, including acclimatization, while it is possible only in spring and autumn. It is currently possible to climb with minimal mountaineering experience as part of commercial groups, accompanied by professional instructors.
