At an elevation of 29,035 feet (8850 meters), Mount Everest is the world‟s largest
mountain. Mount Everest is relatively young, having been formed only 60 million years
ago, and it is still growing a few millimeters every year! Mount Everest is in the
mountain range called the Himalayas. The summit ridge of Mount Everest separates
Nepal and Tibet. Each of these two countries has a special name for this giant mountain.
The Nepalese name is „Sagarmatha‟, which means „goddess of the sky‟. The Tibetan
name is „Chomolungma‟, which means „mother goddess of the universe‟. In English,
Mount Everest is named after Sir George Everest, the first person to record the height and
location of the mountain. A climb to the summit was attempted by George Mallory in
1922, who famously gave his reason for wanting to climb Everest as, “Because it‟s
there”. He attempted to reach the summit again in the company of Andrew Irvine in
1924, but it was on this trip that both climbers disappeared. The first successful ascent of
Mount Everest was accomplished by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay on May
29, 1953. The first ascent by a woman was on May 16th, 1975, by Junko Tabei fromJapan. Between 1921 and 2001, more than 1400 people have climbed Mount Everest.
