     Mountain Everest Tour  

      With an altitude of 8,848 meters, Mount Everest or Qomolangma, the "holy mother" in Tibetan language, is the highest mountain in the world and is also the most beautiful and amazing one among ten famous mountains in China. It is located on the China-Nepal border of the middle part of the Himalaya Mountains and on the due south of Tingri County, Shigatse Prefecture, Tibet. Its north slope is within the border of Tibet in China while the south slope is within the border of Nepal. Mt. Qomolangma is the main peak of the Himalayan range. "Qomo" stands for goddess and "langma" means the third in Tibetan. There are other four peaks around and Qomolangma ranks third, so it is called Qomolangma. Its summit is covered with snow all the year around, representing a holy and pure scene. There are 4 peaks of over 8,000 meters and 38 peaks of over 7000 meters above sea level in Qomolangma region, which is honoured as “the Third Pole on the Earth”. Located at the foot of Mount Qomolangma, Rongbuk Monastery is the world’s highest monastery above sea level, and is regarded as the best spot to overlook Qomolangma, with a linear distance of 25 kilometers.
      The word Qomolangma is transliterated from Tibetan language, meaning “the third goddess”. The upper part of the mountain is covered with ice and snow throughout the year and is cliffy and steep. It is a place attractive to mountaineers worldwide. Overlooking Mount Qomolangma, people will be amazed by its mystery and beauty. Either the chain of grotesque mountains and peaks swathed in cloud or the dazzling ice world arouses people’s great interest. However, what people are most interested in is the cloud floating over the summit, which is like a flag fluttering on the mountain top, so this kind of cloud is vividly described as flag cloud or flag-shaped cloud. The only place to accommodate people near Everest Base Camp is Rongbuk Monastery where is convenient to take a good look at the Mount Everest Tour in the morning and evening. The only place that people can live near the base camp of Everest is the tent area, 2 kilometers from the south of the Rongbuk Monastery.
