Transcript of Sagarmatha Montain
Located between Nepal and Republic of China, the Sagarmatha montain is the tallest in the whole world.
Everest stands impressively above the chain of Himalayan mountains, rising to 8850 meters. The silence is only broken by drumming the strong winds that hit the mountain. Undaunted, the huge rock is witness of countless explorers, who in an attempt to tame its mysteries and challenges, perished on the journey. They found glory. Some even found the summit. But all who lie there, found the cold and icy face of death.
Possessing 8848.43 m high, Seven Summits and part of the mountain range of the Himalayas
By the end of 2006, 8030 people tried to reach the top, and 212 of them did not return the adventure, and of these, 56% died after reaching the summit.
On the morning of May 29, 1953, the New Zealand beekeeper Edmund Hillary and the Sherpa Tenzing Norgay reach the summit.
It was for these highest points of the geography of Nepal the Sherpa people migrated from Tibet for more than 500 years. Famous for having Mount Everest as a background the Sherpas have developed a culture and fascinating way of life, mixed with dangerous peaks among which they live. Where the world sees a geographical obstacle to overcome, Sherpas they see a source of life.
Sherpa literally means "people of the East", as it came out of eastern Tibet. In northeastern Nepal, settled in Solu-Khumbu region of southern base of Mount Everest, near the river Dodh Koshi, which receives the waters of the Himalayan glaciers. There, formed several villages, housing approximately 25,000 people.
Called death montain in their surroundings has about 200 bodies mummified by ice and air as dry as a desert.
In memory of those who are still there!
