At a height of 29,028 feet (8,848 meters), Mount Everest is the highest mountain on our planet. It is located in the Himalayas and sits on the border between China and Nepal. Climbing Everest is a feat for the brave with only around 3,000 people on record to have ever reached its summit. Mountaineers who decide to take on the challenge must endure the effects of the altitude sickness, as well as deal with extreme weather conditions, and other dangers such as avalanches.
