Nepal – Sagarmatha National Park

……… Mount Everest, is an altitude of 8848 m above sea level (according to the older data and 8850 m nm) the highest mountain on Earth. Mount Everest was created along with the rest of the Himalayas by collisions of the Indian and Eurasian continental plates. The mountain is named after the British geodet George Everest.
The Himalayas are still growing thanks to the constant pushing of the Indian Plate into the Eurasian Mountains, which is why the Mount Everest altitude is increasing.
Mount Everest rises in the Mahalangur Himalayas in the Khumbu Nepalese region on the border with China (with the Tibetan Autonomous Region, the western and southeastern peaks forming the border). On the Nepalese side it is part of the Sagarmatha National Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. On the northern side is the Qomolangma National Nature Reserve. This area, with an area of ​​1 823 591 hectares in China, was registered in 2004 on the list of UNESCO biosphere reserves.
Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay made the first exit on the mountain on May 29, 1953.
