Tibet General: 58 reviews and 63 photos
Fondest memory: Until I visited Tibet I had no idea that Mount Everest is just the name that the western world gives to the highest mountain in the world. It's real name is Mount Qomolangma.
This mountain, with its 8,843 metres, is the highest peak of the Himalayas and is located on the border between Tibet and Nepal.
Did you know that this mountain is still rising? About 3 to 12 mm per year! Most of the time the peak of the mountain is surrounded by clouds. The best time to see the peak is early morning or just before sunset.
