Everest
At an elevation of 8848.13 meters, Mt. Everest (Mount Qomolangma) is the main peak of the Himalayas. This world's Number One peak raises high on the border of China and Nepal. Its northern slope lies in the Tingyi County of Tibet. Commanding reverence from fellow giant peaks nearby, Mt. Everest (Mount Qomolangma) is shaped just like a majestic pyramid propping up the sky for the Earth. Surrounding Mount Qomolangma, five of the world's 14 peaks above 8000 meters stand guard within a sphere of 200 square kilometers. They are escorted by another 38 peaks above 7000 meters of sea elevation. Together they form one of the world's most grandiose landscapes. Analyses of geological structure indicate that in the Mesozoic Era about 230 million to 70 million years ago, the region where Mount Qomolangma stands now was part of the ancient Mediterranean Sea. Beginning from the late Tertiary Period of the Cenozoic Era, the region gradually rose. Chinese scientists have concluded that Mt. Everest (Mount Qomolangma) is still rising at a speed of 3.2 to 12.7 millimeters per year.

At the top of Mt. Everest (Mount Qomolangma), there always hangs a wisp of cloud. It flies eastward in the fast western wind just like a flapping flag. This is the unique phenomenon of the area-the "loud Flag of Mount Qomolangma."At times, the cloud will change from surging waves into a thin cooking smoke or from galloping steeds into the mysterious veil of a goddess. Gazing at Mount Qomolangma, one will immerse in a solemn ethereal mood.
