Mt. Everest rises to an imposing 8,850 meters (29,030 feet), and after 29 years of numerous attempts, Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay became the first persons to stand on the elusive summit on May 29,1953. Since then, the South Col has seen over 1,000 ascents. It is by far, the most successfully climbed route on the mountain. World’s number one mountain at an altitude 8,848m (29,028ft) although it is much safer climbing from the North face. The climb from the South is totally different, demanding a life time experience.
Everest South Col ExpeditionIn 1852 the Great Trigonometrically Survey of India measured Everest’s elevation as 29,002 feet above sea level. This remarkably accurate figure remained the officially accepted height for more than one hundred years. In 1955 it was adjusted by a mere 26 feet to 29,028 (8,848 m). The mountain received its official name in 1865 in honor of Sir George Everest, the British Surveyor General from 1830–1843 who had mapped the Indian subcontinent. He had some reservations about having his name bestowed on the peak, arguing that the mountain should retain its local appellation, the standard policy of geographical societies.
Once the North and South Poles had been reached by explorers, the next geographical feat to capture the international imagination was Everest, often called the Third Pole. Attempts to climb Everest began in the 1921, when the forbidden kingdom of Tibet opened its borders to outsiders. On June 8, 1924, two members of a British expedition, George Mallory and Andrew Irvine, attempted the summit.
