Reaching the heavens at 29,029 feet, Mt. Everest earns its “Top of the World” badge. It is a dangerously beautiful mountain located in the Mahalangur Himal sub-range of the Himalayas. Sherpas and Tibetans worship it as ‘Mother Goddess of the Earth,’ praising its powdery peak and shear mass. Many experienced mountain climbers roll the dice trying to reach the top with plenty of obstacles along the way, including altitude sickness, high winds, and avalanches. But if you happen to conquer the colossal mountain, we hear the view is a masterpiece. Although it’s an obvious pick, Mt. Everest stands tall as one of the best natural wonders to see before the lights dim.
