Nepal to Announce ‘New’ Height of Mt. Everest

The Nepali Department of Survey has completed the measurement of the height of Mount Everest that was initiated two years ago.

According to the Department, the fieldwork was completed and the task of data processing is in the final stage.

The Nepali Government has planned to organize an international seminar to announce the height of Everest. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has thrown a spanner in the plans.

Now, the government is planning to announce the new findings in a few months.

The current official height of Mount Everest is 8,848 meters. An Indian Survey established this measurement in 1955.
