Mt. Everest is on the outskirt of Nepal and China. The Southern side of the mountain is open from Nepal, and the Northern side from Tibet (which is currently an independent locale of China). It has been climbed numerous times from both sides.The mountain is brought Sagarmatha in Nepal, and the Tibetans call it Chomolungma (which denotes mother goddess of the Earth).In the early 19th century, the Survey of India (then British India) completed an exceptionally expand mapping action called the 'Great Arc of India', which utilized Triangulation and Trigonometry to touch base at precise separates between two focuses, and in addition statures of crests. This study began in South India close Madras, and advanced progressively northwards through demanding domain. George Everest, then Surveyor General of India administered the majority of this work. Any time the Survey arrived at the Terai (now Bihar), the Surveyors started triangulating the different Himalayan crests that they might see at an awesome separation in the skyline. They n'tn't drop in Nepal as it was then 'taboo domain'. The Surveyors located what they called as 'Peak XV' and sent the information to their Head Office in Kolkata. At Kolkata, a Bengali worker named Radhanath Sikdar, who functioned as a 'Calculator' (those days people with a pizazz for math did the computations manually which are presently done utilizing PCs!) determined the stature of Peak XV from the Survey information and sent in a report to the then Surveyor General of India, Andrew Waugh, that Peak XV had all the earmarks of being the most elevated focus on Earth. It was then the special of the British to hold nearby names for tops. As they n'tn't drop in Nepal, they did not realize that this top was pointed to as Sagarmatha. In spite of the fact that there were rumours that the Tibetans knew this top and it had a name, Waugh made a recommendation that this top had no neighborhood name and consequently it ought to be called as 'Everest' in honour of his forerunner and supervisor, Sir. George Everest (who had by then resigned and came back to England). The name stayed, and we all now know this top as Everest.
