The Himalayas are higher and more majestic mountains in the world.
It is located on the southern edge of the Tibetan Plateau, extending between China and India, Bhutan, Nepal and Sikkim. It is more than 2,500 kilometers long from Pamir to the west and then to the Yarung Tsangpo River in the east. The average altitude is over 6000 meters, which is unmatched by any mountain system in the world.
It has 14 peaks above 8,000 meters and 40 peaks above 7000 meters. Among them, Mount Everest, located on the border between China and Nepal, is 8844.43 meters above sea level.
The Himalayas are one of the higher and lower mountains in the world.
According to geologists, 70 million years ago, there were still vast oceans.
Thirty million years ago, due to orogenic movements, the Indian Ocean plate in the south and the Eurasian plate in the north collided with each other, overlapping and crowding, causing the Himalayas to rise continuously.
By three million years ago, it had risen to 3,500 meters, and it has risen faster in the past 100,000 years.
The average height has now exceeded 6000 meters and is still rising.
The Himalayas suddenly swelled, forming a volley barrier, blocking the hot and humid air flow north of the Indian Ocean, causing the high and cold climate of the Tibetan Plateau and affecting the northwestern region.
“Everest” refers to the goddess of the Snow Mountain in Tibet. She was wrapped in silver, towering high on the top of the earth, overlooking the earth, protecting the good people. She occasionally appeared under the blue sky, sometimes hidden in white snow clouds, and even showed a holy, dignified, beautiful and mysterious image. Everest, the pinnacle of the earth, is an attractive climbing target for Chinese and foreign mountaineering teams.
The history of human ascent to Mount Everest began in 1921, when the British mountaineering team entered the Everest for the first time.
Unfortunately, they failed.
Later, he continued to summarize his experience, but he failed to climb 9 times in more than 20 years. On May 29, 1953, it finally reached the highest point of the earth for the tenth time.
Since then, climbers from all over the world have set new records.
On May 25, 1960, the Chinese mountaineering team successfully reached the summit of the world from the north slope for the first time. On May 2, 1964, the Chinese mountaineering team successfully conquered the summit of the Himalayas, Hissia Bangma (8012 meters), at an altitude of more than 8000 meters.
Icebergs and snow peaks are beautiful, but difficult to climb. For decades, many mountaineering warriors have been sacrificed to climb the summit of the world. However, those who despise difficulties, aspirational and tenacious mountaineers will continue to advance and win the ascent, and almost all the 8,000-meter and 7000-meter snow peaks in the Himalayas have left human footprints.
Today, the conquest of the Himalayas is still the dream of climbers all over the world. They see it as a place to test physical fitness, hone will, and show confidence, wisdom, strength, and technology.
Western China, especially the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, snow-capped mountains, and ice peaks tower between the world’s highest peak, Mount Everest, and the second peak, Gugli Peak, bringing together more than a dozen extreme peaks of more than 8,000 meters, of which more than 7,000 meters and more than 6000 meters Countless mountain peaks. With the development of modern transportation, here will be a vast world of mountain climbing heroes, a heaven for future explorers and tourists, and a fascinating place for scientists to explore the mystery of the roof of the world.
Everest’s new altitude data of 8844.43 meters was compared with the data of 8884.13 meters released by China in 1975. The “height” and “height” of Mount Everest are 3.70 meters, respectively.
At the press conference of the State Council Information Office on September 9, 2019, Chen Bangzhu, the director of the National Bureau of Surveying and Mapping of China, officially announced that the height of the rock surface of Mount Everest was 8,844.43 meters, and the measurement accuracy was ± 0.21 meters.
Friends who like adventure and exercise themselves must not miss the high mountain of Mount Everest.
