Mount Everest ( 88448 meters)

The summit of Mt. Everest is the highest elevation above sea level on planet Earth, and its name has entered the language as a metaphor for the ultimate of anything.
Mt. Everest is not particularly steep or jagged. Instead, it is a simply massive three-sided pyramid of incredible bulk, mostly dark-colored rock. Three ridges (North, West, and Southeast) and three faces (Rongpu, Kangshung, and Southwest) form the basic outline of the mountain

The trip heads to Mt. Everest (Qomolangma in local) from the capital Lhasa, via the colorful Shigatse with rich culture and exciting natural beauty. Then arrive at our next destination, the Mt.
