The height of Mt. Qomolangma is 8848.43 meters, which may become history. A new round of challenge is coming!
Everest, as you may know, is the highest peak on earth. On April 30 of this year, the first press conference of Everest height survey in 2020 was held in Everest base camp. This also marks the official start of the current Everest elevation survey, which is mainly used to accurately determine the existing height of the Everest. In fact, the data before Mount Everest are not very accurate. This time, it is a great challenge to accurately measure the existing height.
In order to help scientists understand the geodynamic plate motion and other related fields in this survey. The results of these measurements will also accurately analyze the influence of the existing crustal movement changes, and provide more accurate gravity anomaly data. It seems that climbing the mountain requires not only good physical strength and climbing skills, but also certain cultural knowledge. Otherwise, I can only say “lying trough”.
Before this survey, China has carried out nearly six large-scale scientific research on Mt. Everest. 2020 is also the 70th anniversary of the first successful ascent of Mt. Everest from the north slope. In 1975 and 2005, China successfully measured the height of Mt. Everest twice. In 1975, the height of the peak was 8848.13 meters. After careful calculation, the rock surface at the top of Mount Everest reached 8844.43 meters.
Mount Everest is the highest mountain in the world. It is a main peak in the Himalayas, on the border between China and Nepal. In Tibetan, Zhumu means goddess, while Longma means mother elephant. Therefore, if combined, the whole meaning can be understood as mother of the earth.
Mount Qomolangma presents a pyramid shape, and the scientific research on Mount Qomolangma is also very dangerous, and the environment is also very complex, in which, the height of the snow line is about 5800 ~ 6200 meters on the north slope, and 5500 ~ 6100 meters on the south slope. Another measurement of the height of Mount Qomolangma may make 8844.43 meters become history! Everest may get a more accurate numerical height this time. Within 20 kilometers around Mount Qomolangma, there are more than 40 peaks at an altitude of more than 7000 meters, the most famous of which is Luozi peak, which is three kilometers to the south.
There are also many world-class peaks corresponding to Mount Everest in the world. In the west, there are gechongkang (7952 meters) and zhuo’aoyou (8201 meters) at an altitude. In the southeast, there are Zhangjia (Gancheng), the third highest peak in the world. They are very close to Mount Qomolangma. It can be said that there is a gathering of heroes near Mount mulangma. If you go to watch it, you will find it very shocking. If you climb it once, it will be unforgettable in your life
