China -> Mt. Qomolangma
Xizang Autonomous Region-Tibet
Mt. Qomolangma, or Mount Everest to the Western world, is the world's highest mountain above sea level. It is 8,848m (29,029ft) high and is located in the Himalaya Mountains. The mountain was named after Sir George Everest, the former British Surveyor General of India who established the first published height of the peak. While thousands have climbed to the top, a trek to base camp is exhausting enough. Everest Base Camp is located 5,200m above sea level, along with the Rongphu Monastery. At the monastery, there are guesthouses and a restaurant that sells simple supplies.
