Mt. Everest Travel Reviews

Mt Everest has 25 reviews on Google Maps. Did you know that? You should read them. Some are very funny. Here are some samples:

the mountain troll would not let us pass because my nanna was not wearing purple. Eventually he let us pass after nanna flashed him. It was degrading for all of us

Wheelchair Unfriendly‎ Forget snapping the honeymoon picture of a lifetime on the summit of Everest should you suffer from an ailment that has confined you to a wheelchair. Not a ramp in sight.

No Gift Shop‎ I took the kids on a trip to the top of Mt. E and was disappointed at the lack of family services. No gift shop, no hand rails and they didn’t even have a bathroom. This is the last time I will take my 5 year old on a trip like this. The family Everest vacation is overrated… go to Disneyland instead.

Here’s an interesting fact about Everest: Its not the tallest mountain in the world. Many say it is but actually, its the highest above sea level. The tallest mountain in the world is Mauna Kea in Hawaii. Everest is 8,848 meters above the sea while Mauna Kea is over 10,000 meters. The discrepancy arrises because Mauna Kea only has an altitude of 4,205 meters above sea level. More info on Geology.com
