Mount Everest, also known in Nepal as Sagarmāthā and in Tibet as Chomolungma, is Earth’s highest mountain. It is located in the Mahalangur mountain range in Nepal and Tibet. Its peak is 8,848 metres (29,029 ft) above sea level. The international border between China (Tibet Autonomous Region) and Nepal runs across Everest’s precise summit point. Its massif includes neighbouring peaks Lhotse, 8,516 m (27,940 ft); Nuptse, 7,855 m (25,771 ft) and Changtse, 7,580 m (24,870 ft).
In 1856, the Great Trigonometrical Survey of India established the first published height of Everest, then known as Peak XV, at 8,840 m (29,002 ft). The current official height of 8,848 m (29,029 ft) as recognised by China and Nepal was established by a 1955 Indian survey and subsequently confirmed by a Chinese survey in 1975. In 1865, Everest was given its official English name by the Royal Geographical Society upon a recommendation by Andrew Waugh, the British Surveyor General of India. As there appeared to be several different local names, Waugh chose to name the mountain after his predecessor in the post, Sir George Everest, despite George Everest’s objections.

Just wanted to throw out a small plug for Ganesh and Gabish – a father and son owned trekking company in Nepal. In 2013, Susanne and I were lucky enough to have Ganesh as a guide for our quiet two week hike through the Tsum Valley. He really is fantastic at his job and has an amazing singing voice (a bonus on long days of hiking)!!! Many trekking providers are not owned by their guides, so your money does not always go into the pockets of those that work the hardest. If any of you guys out there are considering a holiday to Nepal or know someone who is, you should get in touch with Ganesh and Gabish at Nature Hike Nepal – http://www.naturehikenepal.com – and hopefully Ganesh will be free to show you around !! – Dan and Sussanne
We trekked with Ganesh in November of 2014 when we did the Everest Base Camp trek for our honeymoon. What an amazing experience! Ganesh was so knowledgeable, friendly and trustworthy.
His English is great and he is a very good communicator. He took such good care to make sure we had a wonderful experience. When we started the trek, Ganesh was our guide. By the time we finished the trip, Ganesh was our friend. I’ve recommended Ganesh to several friends that visited Nepal after us and they all share the same feedback about Ganesh. He is fantastic!! – Mary Messer
