Mt Everest

#19 - Kathmandhu, Nepal
Visited Here?
Do You Dream?
It's the best brain freeze you'll ever have.
It's no surprise this made #19 on our AbsoluteVisit list; Mt. Everest is the tallest mountain in the world, standing almost 30,000 ft. high. Or imagine 20 Empire State Buildings stacked on top of each other. Over 4,000 people have attempted to climb the mountain, but only a few have been successful. It's the journey of a lifetime, the Tibetans call it “Mother Goddess of the Earth” and we can see why. We wonder what people call it on their climb up?
