In China's Tibet and Nepal border is located on the world's first peak, it is considered the world's absolute highest height of the mountain, that is, the highest altitude, can reach 8848.86 meters, almost equivalent to the world's tallest building Kingdom Tower eight times as much, here also because of the high altitude, so the snow all year round, the environment is extremely harsh, but also become the highest dream in the hearts of global mountaineering enthusiasts.

It may be difficult for many people to understand how high Everest is, simply put the entire Everest lateral down, enough for an adult to run from end to end at least half an hour, but in fact in such a high altitude environment, almost few people can easily mount Everest, so far only 4469 people have successfully summited, and most of them are to choose the sunny side, and climbing before the need for a full six months of preparation, otherwise it is easy to appear life-threatening.

And Everest as the world's number one peak, it rises a few centimeters every year, just like the speed of nail growth, and it is also moving year by year towards the northwest, that is, this side of Tibet in China, moving 6 centimeters every year, so at the present time there are climbers in Colorado, USA, who have made precise measurements and found that Everest has risen to 8,850 meters. on December 8, 2020, China and Nepal jointly announced the latest elevation of Mount Everest at 8848.86 meters.
