Everest is the highest mountain in the world and, of course, there is no person who would not hear about this peak, however, unfortunately, very few people can tell where it is.

Everest belongs to the Himalayan mountain system - the Mahalangur-Himal mountain range, which is located in China, Nepal and the Tibet Autonomous Region.

The geographical coordinates of the mountain are 27 ° 59′17 ″ north latitude 86 ° 55′31 ″ east longitude.

The height of the mountain is 8848 meters.

Other names for Mount Everest are Chomolungma (Lord of the Winds) and Jomo Kang Kar (Lady of the White Snows), Chomolungma is more common.

The mountain resembles a trihedral pyramid. The southern slope is steeper than the others, and therefore it is exposed — the snow on the slope cannot be kept.

At the top of Everest, very strong winds blow, speed reaches 55 m / s. The temperature at night is -60 degrees.
