Scaling all four sides                                                                                  The only person who has successfully climbed Mount Everest from all four sides is Kushang Sherpa. He is currently associated with Himalayan Mountaineering where he is an instructor.Want to burn calories? Climb Everest!                                                          If you are fretting over getting fat and no diet is working then you should give Everest climbing a serious thinking. People who climb Everest burn 20,000 calories on the day when they summit climb. On an average they burn 10,000 calories per day for the rest of the climb.Out of Breath!                                                                                            You are literally out of breath when you climb Mount Everest. This is because the atmospheric pressure at the top is very high. So, you can only breathe one – third of the total oxygen that you inhale at normal elevations.Freezing PointO Yeah, Freezing point is the highest temperature of Mount Everest. The temperature never goes above freezing point on Everest! During summer the average temperature is – 19 degree C and in winter it is – 36 degree C.Tweet from the Everest                                                                             The first tweet sent from the top of Mount Everest was in 2011 by Kent Cool. His tweet: “Everest summit no 9! 1st tweet from the top of the world thanks to a weak 3G signal” That’s indeed a cool tweet from Mr. Cool himself.Dead Bodies Point Ways                                                                                 Dead Bodies pointing out your way… seems like a scene from horror movie. Isn’t it? But there are more than 200 corpses of climbers on Mount Everest which are used by other climbers as a way point to decide whether they are on right path or not.Wind power on Everest                                                                                   Can you guess what the speed of wind is over Mount Everest? It is a whooping 200 mph. Imagine standing on the top of Mount Everest in a cold chilly 200 mph wind. Phew!Now comes the Oldest                                                                                     Most people start thinking about retiring at the age of 60 – 65. But this was not the case for Yuichiro Miura. He became the oldest person to scale Mount Everest at the ripe age of 80. After all where there is will there is way.The Youngest on Mount Everest                                                                     At the age when kids are busy fighting over chocolates and making excuses for no homework, this brave boy- Jordon Romero created history! In May 2010, Jordon Romero got worldwide attention by becoming the youngest person to scale Mount Everest at the age of just 13 years.The first flight over Everest                                                                              In April 1933, two people Charles Douglas – Hamilton (pilot) and David Fowler Maclnytre (fellow pilot) successfully flew the Westland PV-3 biplane over mount Everest making this flight the first one to fly over this summit.The Maiden Year                                                                                             The year when no one attempted to climb Mount Everest is the year 1974; making it a maiden year for Mount Everest.                                                                                                                       First to conquer the mightiest                                                                     On May 29, 1953 history was created by Edmund Hilary and Tenzing Norgay when the duo successfully scaled the highest and dreaded mountain peak of the world.Certainly The Dirtiest                                                                                       Every year many climbers climb Mount Everest. During the climbing they leave behind many litters and wastes like climbing equipment’s, broken ropes, oxygen bottle and even human feces. Also those climbers who die on the way to the mountain; their bodies are left behind and Everest is now actually littered by corpses of various climbers. It is estimated that Everest is completely littered with about 50 tons of waste. Tallest or not; Everest certainly is the filthiest mountain.Not The Tallest                                                                                                 Mount Everest is the highest mountain Range but it certainly is not the tallest. The tallest mountain is Mauna Kea with 4,205 meters above sea level. Are you thinking that Mount Everest is 8,848 meters above sea level, then how can Mauna Kea be tallest? Well actually the Mauna Kea extends below the sea level. So, when it is measured from the base which is on the ocean floor then its height is 10,200 meters which is about a mile taller than the Mount Everest.Still growing                                                                                                     Mount Everest is young and still growing! Yup Mount Everest grows approximately 0.16 inches i.e. 4 millimeters every year. Even after 60 million years, Everest hadn’t reached puberty yet. (Wink!)The young Everest                                                                                          Even though Mount Everest is 60 million years old; yet it is quite young as compared to other mountains. ...
