Standing incredibly tall at just over 29,000ft above sea level- Mount Everest is the highest peak in the world, silhouetted against the shared sky of Nepal and Tibet. Spending 55 years of its conquest even it is still as beguiling and magnificent as ever. Each year, people from across the world take on the ultimate challenge of Everest Expedition; the ascent of Mount Everest. This mountain has many names: Chomolungma, Sagarmatha, Qomolungma or Mt. Everest. Whichever name one chooses, its mystery still lives on. It was first climbed by Sir E. Hillary & Tenzing Norgay on 29 May 1953.
