Located On The border between Nepal and China, Mt. Everest (8848 meters) is called Sagarmatha in Nepali which means the Head of the Sky and is known as Chomolungma in Tibetan meaning saint mother. Before Everest the mountain was known as Peak XV which was subsequently re-named Mt. Everest to honor Sir George Everest, the then Surveyor General of India who firstly recorded the location of Everest in the 1856.The mountain, while not posing substantial technical climbing difficulty on the standard route (other eight-thou sanders such as K2 or Nanga Parbat are much more difficult), still has many inherent dangers such as altitude sickness, weather and wind. By the end of the 2007 climbing season, there had been 3,679 ascents to the summit by 2,436 individuals.
The South Col route (South East Ridge) on the Nepal side of Mt. Everest is the way taken by Late Sir Edmund Hillary and Late Tenzing Norgay Sherpa who first climbed it in 1953. Possibly the most colorful story about the early attempts on Everest is the one involving Captain J. Noel and his native companions. He disguised himself as a Mohammaden and made a journey from Darjeeling through Northwest Sikkim and round the north of Kanchanjunga in an attempt to reach Everest. Unfortunately, not even the disguise could see him through. His mission was out short just sixty-five km from Everest when a posse of Tibetan soldiers forced them to turn back. Although there is a dozen or so route on Mt. Everest we follow the classical route, traditionally the most reliable way to the summit.
Everest Expedition has been successfully organized and climbed many times since then, but this should not lull prospective Everest climbers into complacency. Everest is a deadly mountain. Noting this, one cannot approach the mountain with anything but a serious determination and focused mountaineering attitude. Everest is still as inexplicable, beguiling and magnificent as ever.
