 Mount Everest

Mount Everest is the highest mountain all over the world. It's located on the border of Nepal and Tibet, at an elevation of 29,028 feet (8,848 meters).

The first recorded ascent to Mount Everest was in 1953 by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay from New Zealand. They were accompanied by Sherpas who helped them get to the top of this remote region with no roads or other means of transportation.


K2 is located in the Karakoram mountain range, which is located in the border between Pakistan and China. The mountain stands at 8,611 meters (28,251 feet) above sea level, making it the second-highest peak on Earth after Mount Everest.

K2 was first climbed by a Norwegian expedition in 1954—but because of its high risk factor and dangerous conditions for climbers, only one person has ever reached the summit: Willi Unsoeld (a member of this team).


Kangchenjunga is the third highest mountain in the world and also located in Nepal. It is part of the Himalayan range, which runs from Pakistan to Tibet. The mountain was first climbed during 1961 by a British expedition led by John Hunt who reached its summit at 6:30 pm on May 28th after four days climbing!

The first summit was first climbed by Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary on 31 May 1953. Their ascent party consisted of Hannelore Schoefeler from Austria; Willi Unsoeld from Alaska; Peter Habeler and Hans Kammerlander from Switzerland; Pertemba Sherpa (Sherpas were local Sherpa people who helped out with logistics); Herman Buhlman from Germany; Tshering Bhote Sherpa (Sherpas were local Sherpa people who helped out with logistics), Georg Freundlmayr; Ernst Fuchs from Austria; Heinrich Harrer from Austria/Austrian climbers); Fritz Kainz André Wintner

The mountain was first climbed by a British expedition in 1950 under the leadership of Colonel Charles Bruce-Kellet. The peak was first ascended by an American team led by Charles Houston in 1956 via its west side, which was not until two years later that it was successfully climbed from east to west via its south face.[6] The second ascent took place five years later when a Japanese team reached its summit on 22 June 1959.


Manaslu is the eighth highest mountain in the world. It has an elevation of 8,156 meters (26,759 feet) and its peak lies at an altitude of 7.7 km (24 miles). This makes it one of only two mountains that can be seen from both sides at once - Mount Everest being the other one.

Manaslu was first climbed by a British expedition led by Eric Shipton in 1955; however, it was not until 1963 when another British team made another attempt at reaching this summit. They were unsuccessful because avalanches prevented them from proceeding any further during their climb up to Base Camp 4 at 5500 meters (18000 feet).

 Nanga Parbat

Nanga Parbat is the 9th highest mountain .. It's located in Pakistan, and it has an elevation of 8125 meters (26,660 feet).

The world is full of mountains that are taller than all others combined. From the tallest peaks, such as Mount Everest and K2, to the most famous ones like Annapurna I or Kangchenjunga, it’s easy to get lost in their sheer size and beauty. However, these mountains are not just impressive for their size; they also have many different faces that make them unique and fascinating places to visit! For example: Mt Everest has many glaciers underneath its peak where you can hike down into icy waterfalls while experiencing nature at its finest; while Lhotse Peak has steep slopes where climbers try and reach higher altitudes by climbing up steep cliffs .
