Mount Everest Measuring Opportunity

Mount Everest Measuring Opportunity

Buddhi Narayan Shrestha

Nepal Survey Department is going to measure the height of Mount Everest (Sagarmatha) next year in Autumn. It’s a matter of pride and prestige to Nepal to measure the Everest by itself. Because Everest is located in Nepal and it is the heritage of Nepal. So Nepal must announce its authentic height measuring scientifically acceptable to all.

In course of measurement, it is relevant to associate India and China as well. It is in a sense that Survey of India found it as the highest peak in the world in 1852 and named Peak-XV. Later, it was named as Mount Everest in 1865. It was re-measured in 1954.

The reason to involve China is that Everest is located between Nepal and India. However, the peak falls on Nepal side. Everest could be climbed from both Nepal and China side. Everest is measured by China in 1975 and 2005. Now Nepal is going to measure by itself. If the Nepali team is associated by China and India, it would be more relevant and recognizable the height measured and announced by Nepal. Followings are the detail in Nepali script :-
