Have you ever thought who are the First Climbers of the Mount Everest?

Mount Everest has the current official elevation of 8,848 m (29,029 ft), recognized by China and Nepal, which was established by a 1955 Indian survey and subsequently confirmed by a Chinese survey in 1975.

Mt. Everest attracts many climbers, some of them are highly experienced mountaineers.

There are two main climbing routes:

  • One of which is approaching the summit from the south-east in Nepal (also known as the “standard route”)
  • The second is from the north in Tibet.

While not posing substantial technical climbing challenges on the standard route at Mt. Everest, it presents dangers such as altitude sickness, weather, and wind, as well as significant hazards from avalanches and the Khumbu Icefall.

As of 2017, nearly about 300 people have died on Mt. Everest, many of whose bodies have still remained on the mountain.
