The first trip to Mt. Everest and the trekking trails
China first called the mountain we now call "Mt. Everest" and "Mt. Chomolungma."In 1856, the Great Trigonometric Survey was used by the British Indian government to figure out how high Everest was. The survey was called "Pinnacle XV," and the height was found to be around 8840m. After that, many surveys and studies were done, and the height was thought to be "8848 m." However, after the earthquake in 2015, it was thought that Everest's height might have changed, so the Nepalese government did a survey and found that the new height of Mt. Everest is "8848.86m."
Since then, the world has learned about the Everest trekking trail, which has become very popular among people who like to travel and trek. On the way to Everest, the path goes through many different landscapes that can be stunningly beautiful. Since the first expedition, travelers have wanted to know what it's like to stand on the highest peak in the world. However, only a few people have been able to do it. Still, people can easily get to Everest Base Camp, which is the most popular trekking trail in the world. From there, they can walk right up to the doors of the highest peak in the world.
