Posted (IP: Staff) ·

The Department of Survey has begun it own measurement of Mt Everest to ascertain the actual height of the world’s tallest peak.

According to the first scientific measurement conducted in 1856, the height of Everest is 8,848 metres. The new study will not only reveal the actual height of Everest but also show the impact of climate change on the mountain.

There are speculations that the height of Everest could have changed due to the Great Earthquake of 2015, with a possible shift in its position. There has been no scientific research to check these assumptions.
