Mount Everest


At an height of 8,848 m (29,028 ft), Mount Everest is one of the tallest mountains in the world. The mountains, which is part of the Himalaya range in High Asia, is located on the border between Nepal and China.

First recognised as the highest peak in 1852, it got its western name ten years later in 1862.

Mount Everest was named for Sir George Everest (1790-1866), a British surveyor.

The Himalayas were formed in the last few million years. After the supercontinent of Laurasia broke up millions of years ago, India moved slowly north towards Asia and then crashed into it. The seabed between the two plates was crumbled and pushed up on the Northern rim of India to form the mountains.
