Mount Everest Height

Mount Everest HeightHuman mind is by nature sadist. It is by nature voyeuristic too. It likes controversy and lives by it. And if we talk precisely of South Asian societies then we can easily conclude that it is the most argumentative society between the two worlds. It is impossible to find a man or a thing for which two different and contradicting views are not proposed. The same goes true with Mount Everest too. Almost every man you ask will give you his and her exclusive data on it. I am positive that during your tours to Nepal you will come across so many conspiracy theories and versions about Mount Everest summit and related facts that you will faint only to be woken by another bizarre version of the same.

The current height of Mount Everest has been deduced to 8848 meters or 29,028 feet above the sea level. It was in 1852 that this giant was first measured. Some sporadic efforts for its measurement were done earlier too but all of them were abandoned in the middle. In the year 1852, The British Trigonometrical Survey of India measured Everest's elevation as 29,002 feet above the sea level. How could, with such limited means and such primitive instruments, anyone find the actual height of the Everest? But surprisingly, that figure was extremely close to the actual height. This remarkably accurate figure remained the officially accepted height for more than one hundred years. It was only in the year 1955 that this figure was slightly adjusted. The adjusted height was merely 26 feet adrift of the 1852 figure. The adjusted figure stands at 29,028 feet (8,848 m).

In the year 2007, the Federal Government of China decided to initiate another drive to measure the height of the Mount Everest. It has been done keeping in view the availability of modern technique and equipments. Besides, due to global warming and its counter-repercussions, the height of various mountain peaks has varied from the established figures.
