Rising 8,848m above sea level, Mt. Qomolangma or Mount Everest, the world's highest summit, is the main peak of the Himalayas. Fighting hard to formidable natural conditions, transcending oneself and reaching the summit of Mount Qomolangma is the common dream of mountain climbing enthusiasts worldwide.

New Zealand athlete Edmund Hillary and Nepalese Sherpa Tenzing Norgay were the first to reach the summit of Mount Everest on May 29, 1953.

On May 25, 1960, Chinese mountaineering team players Wang Fuzhou, Qu Yinhua and Kampot reached the summit from the north slope of Mount Qomolangma for the first time in human history.

Over the past 60 years, thousands of mountaineering enthusiasts have reached the summit of Mount Qomolangma and realized their dreams.
