The world’s highest mountain has official claimed its height finally. After years of debates between Nepal and China conclusively have agreed on the precise elevation of Mount Everest. The fleshly new height is 8,848.86 metres which is around 29,031.69 feet above the sea level as announced in the virtual ceremony.
It was recognised 86 centimetres higher than the previous measurement recognised by Nepal and it is more than four metres above the official figures stated by China.
The new height is 0.86 meters (more than 2 feet) above the higher of the countries' two previous figures, that given by Nepal. The agreement announced Tuesday was heralded as a sign of the growing political, economic and cultural ties between them.
