The highest summit on earth – Mount Everest, Sagarmatha or Chomolungma – is 8848m high.


The route to the foot of Mount Everest became popular following the, now legendary, first ascent of the peak in 1953 by Edmund Hillary from New Zealandand the Sherpa Tensing Norgay. In 1978 Reinhold Messner and Peter Habeler were the first to reach the mountain summit without artificial oxygen.
