World-known mount Everest has a Tibetan name---“ Chomolungma”, which means “the Goddess of the universe”. It’s the main peak of the Himalayas and proved to be the highest peak on earth by the official record of 8,848m (29,029 feet). With snow and ice covering all year round, it appears like a silver pyramid from a distance. For centuries, it has been standing firmly and watching the world quietly.

Thousands of adventurers have been inspired and come to challenge themselves. Thus, Mt. Everest turns into a trekking or mountaineering destination for all adventure lovers.
