Know your mountain, Mt. Everest

Mount Everest is the world's highest mountain standing at 8,848 m above sea level. The name Everest was suggested by Andrew Waugh, the British Surveyor General of India. It was initially named peak XV until he suggested the name Everest after Welsh surveyor Sir George Everest. Despite Everest's objection, the name was used. In Nepali, Everest is known as Sagarmatha and in Tibetan, it is called Chomolungma meaning Goddess mother of mountains.

Everest was first submitted by Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary via the southeast ridge in 1953. However, before that George Mallory and Andrew Irvine attempted to summit Everest in 1924, but never to return, sparking debates whether they were the first to summit Everest. In 1999, Mallory's body was found at 8,155m on the north face. The standard route to summit Everest is via southeast ridge route, however, some use the north route from Tibet.

Who can climb Everest?

Climbing any mountain is a tough task. You need to be physically fit but also determined and ready to adjust in changing conditions. When in high altitudes even the slightest mistake can prove to be a fatal one. So, maintaining discipline and following a strict routine can be helpful.So, who can climb Everest? Any mountaineer who is fit and some experience of climbing mountains can do it ease. It is also a matter of luck and choosing the right season to the summit.

The route to the top of the world's highest mountain is not as technical as that of Ama Dablam. But it doesn't mean it is easy. You still have to overcome the Khumbu Icefall, the most challenging part of Everest summit and you also need to pass through the death zone. Once you overcome these parts, the climb to the summit will be easy.
