“Experience, explore and enjoy the highest summit (8848m) on Earth, the Mt. Everest (Qomolangma) in association with Snowy Horizon Expeditions through the easy path from Tibet, the North Face Route via North Ridge.”
Mt. Everest called The Sagarmatha(the forehead of the sky) in Nepali and Qomolangma in Tibetan is the highest summit on Earth with an altitude of 8848.86m and thus is known as the roof of the world. The Jewels of Asia Mt. Everest has its two major faces South and North. The South face of the most popular mountain lies in Nepal whereas the North face lies in China’s autonomous state Tibet. History says that in 1715, China surveyed the mountain for the first time while they were mapping Chinese territory and depicted it as Mount Qomolangma.
However, Mt. Everest was first officially measured in 1856 during the Great Trigonometry Survey of the British Indian Government and was named as Peak XV certified with a height of 8840m. Sir George Everest, the General of British India during the survey period was the major surveyor in 1856. Hence to honor him the name of this highest peak was chosen as Mt. Everest. During the period, Tibet and Nepal were closed to foreigners, so it is reasonable to assume that local names of the mountain were unknown which made the name Mt. Everest, popular in the world.
Many people in the world credit the discovery of the peak and its height to Sir George Everest as above. However, in the Indian Journal of History of Science, 50.4 (2015) 642-645 named “Trigonometrical Survey of India and Naming of Peak XV as Mt. Everest” says Radhanath Sikdar, an Indian native, and Andrew Waugh, the subsequent Surveyor-General, deserve the true recognition. The paper will explore the old materials to give more accurate details on the discovery of Mt. Everest. Most of the data was gathered from the book EVEREST the Man and the Mountain written by J. R. Smith.
Due to the highest elevation and summit point on earth, the mountain has now become a lifetime dream for most mountaineers. There are two commercial routes on Mt. Everest Expedition. One is the South Face route via Southeast Ridge from Nepal and the other is the North Face route via North Ridge from Tibet. The royalty of this Expedition from the Tibet side (North Face) is now higher than in Nepal. Before it was significantly lower. Tibet is now charging a minimum of US$ 15800 per climber for a minimum of 4 members required on a team that covers the border to BC and BC to border transportation with jeep/minibus and BB Plan accommodations en-route before the campsite and limited yaks to carry the logistics up to Advance Base Camp. Whereas, Nepal is charging only US$ 11,000 per climbing member as the royalty fee for the same. However, there are other hidden charges on formalities for climbing Sherpa and base camp staff insurance covering the search and rescue with helicopters and the government-appointed liaison officer for each expedition team.
The climbers who can manage the huge funding for Mt. Everest Expedition personally or through business sponsors are eligible to take part since the climbing experience and techniques are not the major requisitions. In the project of Mt. Everest Expedition North Face in Tibet, a professional mountain guide with a team of climbing Sherpa can take the climbing member individually to the summit for a substantial fee added to the package.
