Mt.Everest is the tallest mountain in the world. At 29,029 ft. climbers face a challenging trip the summit. With the high altitude the air gets harder to breath because there is less oxygen. The summit is also used as a boarder to the China to the north and Nepal to the south.
Many people attempt to climb Everest every year but a little bit ago it wasn't so normal. The first people to climb this mountain were Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary on May 19, 1953.
Climbers may face many challenges on their brave trip to the summit. The higher the altitude the harder it gets to breath and Mt.Everest is presumably the highest point on earth so the climbers will have to bring oxygen tanks. Another thing that is a struggle for climbers is the minimal food sources. The temperatures can get very, very cold and most animals and need good plants to eat and plants can't survive with the freezing temperatures.
The danger of even climbing the mountain is scary let alone actually climbing it. The height you have to climb gives you the danger of falling and without the proper gear you could even freeze to death. An avalanche is more common then you think. With the steep slopes of this mountain, snow is always tumbling down.
Though some animals have trouble getting food but others can adapt to the rough temperatures and harsh climate. Some animals that live on the mountain are a snow leopard, black bear, Himalayan Goral, and more.
