Traveling is slowly opening up and we all are making plans to start exploring the world again.
Since a year or two after World War I, Everest has been a British institution—or at least climbing it has Best Travels Agency. It was discovered to be the world's highest peak by triangulation from the Indian plains about the middle of the nineteenth century. This was surprising because Everest does not appear to rise over the surrounding peaks. Since then, there have been threats from flash competitors such as Amne Machin in northwest China, but Everest remains the tallest, despite disagreements over its exact height. The Great Trigonometrical Survey of India, a British expedition, estimated it to be 29,002 feet in 1852—an approximation, to be sure. Some experts claim it's 29,141, based on later sightings, but others claim it's 29,002.
