It is the highest spot on planet Earth, known to many as the roof of the world and the ultimate challenge for mountain-climbing adventurers. Welcome to Mount Everest.

Mount Everest is undoubtedly the most famous mountain on Earth. Hundreds of people clamber to its summit every year, following in Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay’s footsteps. But there is so much more to this mountain than the people who climb it. Travel back to its ancient origins, learn about the flowers and plants that grow upon its great flanks, and discover the rich history of Sagarmatha, the Goddess of the Sky.
