Mount Everest

History of Mt. Everest Expedition;

Mount Everest’s history begins in the early twentieth century when British surveyors, explorers, and mountaineers began exploring the Himalayan region. In 1921, a British expedition led by George Mallory attempted but failed to reach the top. Mallory attempted a second attempt in 1924, but he vanished during the ascent, and they did not discover his body until 1999.

Tenzing Norgay, a Sherpa from Nepal, and Sir Edmund Hillary, a climber from New Zealand, were the first people to successfully climb Mount Everest in 1953. Their historic achievement was widely publicized and marked a significant step in mountaineering history.

Since then, many climbers from all over the world have tried their best to climb Mount Everest, with varied degrees of success. Many climbers have perished on the mountain throughout the years, and its extreme weather and high altitude make it one of the most difficult and dangerous climbs in the world.

In recent years, there has been an increasing worry about the influence of tourism on Mount Everest and the surrounding region. The Chinese and Nepalese governments have taken measures to control the number of climbers and enhance safety precautions on the mountain, but the difficulties in managing such a well-known and recognizable location continue to be a source of worry.

My family and I took a Tibet Flight to Lhasa from Shanghai and had a nice tour guide with us who was pure Tibetan, and fluent in English.  The entire trip to Lhasa was incredible, with delicious Tibetan cuisine, yak milk, and meat that is only found in this region. We were thrilled to see the ancient structures, and the tomb, and to learn more about the Dalai Lama's past. One thing that was holding us back was a headache caused by a lack of oxygen. Overall, it was a wonderful experience, and I advise travelers to spend a few days somewhere with a moderate mindset before traveling to Tibet.
