Mount Jolmo Lungma (or Mount Everest as it is more commonly known), stands 8848 meters above sea level and means goddess in Tibetan. This is the highest mountain in the world, and is situated in the middle of the Himalayas on the border between China and Nepal. Snow covers the mountain all year round. The area around here is known as the 3rd pole of the world, and is surrounded by large glaciers and icebergs. Below the snow line is the forest of ice pagodas, scattered with deep ice caves and winding ice rivers. The highest temple in the world can also be found here ----Ronbu temple. Camps and sight seeing pavilions are dotted about at Everest base camp, 5000 meters away from the foot of the mountain.
