The new height of Mt Everest

The new height of Mt Everest- A joint study by Nepal and China reviewed the height of Mount Everest from 8,848 meters to 8,848.86 meters.
According to a previous survey by the Survey of India in 1954, the height of the mount. Everest is 8,848 meters high. The new height will be based on trigonometry and GPS measurements made by Nepal and China.

Nepal sent a team of inspectors up in May 2019, while China sent a team earlier this year. The Nepalese government has decided to estimate the exact height of the mountain amid talks that could cause a change in altitude for a variety of reasons, including the catastrophic earthquake in 2015. Between 1849 and 1855, the Indian Survey saw from Dehradun, the Himalayan mountains of Nepal to India and later to Sonakhoda in Bihar. At that time, it was not known if the Himalayan peaks were the highest in the world. At the time of the calculation, the applied height of the Peak was 8839.80 meters, which was later named after Sir George Everest, the former General Investigator of India.

Mount Everest

Mount Everest, also known as Sagarmatha in Nepal. It is the highest mountain in the world and is located in the Malikur Himalayan range of the Himalayas. The China-Nepal border is at its summit. In 2005, a Chinese survey of the mountain estimated it to be about 8,000 feet [8,844 m] (approximately 29,015 feet).

However, since Nepal does not authorize this study, the country does not consider it an official height. At that time, they used 8,848 meters (29,029 feet), according to a 1955 Indian study.

Then in 2015, several scientific studies indicated that the height of the mountain had changed after a magnitude 7.8 earthquake shook Nepal. Two years later, the Nepalese government began the long and arduous task of re-estimating heights for the first time.
