About Mt. Everest

These are just a few points that will help you better understand a bit more about the highest peak in the world. 

RELIGION
The southern part of Mount Everest is regarded as one of several “hidden valleys” of refuge designated by Padmasambhava, a ninth-century “lotus-born” Buddhist saint. (source: Wikipedia)

FLORA AND FAUNA
A moss grows at 6,480 meters (21,260 ft). Birds, such as the bar-headed goose, have been seen flying at the higher altitudes of the mountain, while others, such as the chough, have been spotted as high as the South Col at 7,920 meters (25,980 ft). Yaks are often used to haul gear for Mount Everest climbs. They can haul 100 kg (220 pounds), have thick fur and large lungs.

GEOLOGY
Geologists have subdivided the rocks comprising Mount Everest into three units called formations. Each formation is separated from the other by low-angle faults, called detachments, along which they have been thrust southward over each other.

ENVIRONMENT
Air temperature of −17 °C (1 °F), relative humidity 41.3 percent, atmospheric pressure 382.1 hPa (38.21 kPa), wind direction 262.8°, wind speed 12.8 m/s (28.6 mph, 46.1 km/h), global solar radiation 711.9 watts/m2, solar UVA radiation 30.4 W/m. In February 2004 a wind speed of 280 km/h (175 mph) was recorded at the summit and winds over 160 km/h (100 mph) are common.

SHERPA PEOPLE
Sherpa is one of the major ethnic groups native to the most mountainous regions of Nepal, as well as certain areas of China, Bhutan, India, and the Himalayas. The term sherpa or sherwa derives from the Sherpa language words Shar (“east”) and Wa (“people”), which refer to their geographical origin in Tibet.
