The team has set a new record by measuring the Mount Everest for the first time in Nepal’s survey history.

Further, the survey officials will share the details with the concerned government department officials, months later, informed the Survey department.

Four government officials Khimlal Gautam, Rabin Karki, Suraj Singh Bhandari and Yuvaraj Dhital were among the team members part of the survey.

The move to remeasure the Everest peak came after the debates that argued that the Mount Everest had shrunk after the April 2015 earthquake.

Till date, Nepal has been considering 8,848 meters as the altitude of the Everest peak, as measured by the Survey of India in 1954.
