View of the Everest panorama in 2012 in Nepal from Mount Kala Patthar. Everest, in Tibetan, Chomolungma, in Nepalese, Sagarmāthā, is a mountain located in the Himalayas, on the border between Nepal and Tibet. After a few years of observations and calculations, its altitude is established at 8,848 meters and it is identified as the highest peak in the world above sea level. This characteristic earned it its current name from the West in 1865 and, as early as the 1920s, attracted the interest of mountaineers who set out to attack its slopes. Several expeditions, particularly British, followed one another from the north. However, extreme weather conditions claimed their first victims, including George Mallory and Andrew Irvine in 1924, and it is unlikely that we will ever know for sure if they have reached the summit. In 1950, Nepal allowed access to the mountain from the south, offering climbing opportunities via the less dangerous south-eastern ridge. Finally, three years later, Edmund Hillary and Tensing Norgay succeeded in defeating Everest. From then on, all kinds of exploits followed one another, fuelling popular fantasies; but in 1996, a series of fatal accidents reminded us of the dangers associated with the mountains, bringing the number of victims to over 200 today. However, mass tourism is becoming more popular, weakening the natural environment despite the creation of Sagarmatha National Park in 1976 and Qomolangma Nature Reserve in 1988. Thus, more than 14,000 mountaineers have attempted the ascent since 1922 and more than 4,000 have succeeded, most of them well helped by the Sherpas.
