The government is scheduled to announce the new height of Everest, world’s highest peak, on December 8. The office of the Survey Department has organized a program to declare the height of Everest and honor it at Min Bhawan.

Deputy Director General of the Department Sushil Narasimha Rajbhandari has also written a letter for the program to be organized on December 8 at 1:30 pm. A study by the Department of Surveying and Mapping showed that the height of the Himalayas was affected by the catastrophic earthquake in 2015.

This is the first time that Nepal has measured the height of Mount Everest with its own resources, based on the assumption that the height of Mount Everest may have increased due to this reason. Government teams from Nepal and China worked jointly.

Earlier, various countries had been measuring the height of Mount Everest. According to a source, the world’s highest peak, Mount Everest, which was last measured in 1954 by the Survey of India, has remained unchanged at 8848.

The work of measuring the height of Everest was started in the fiscal years 075 and 076 B.s . After the completion of the height measurement work this year, the Chinese Defense Minister is now on a visit to Nepal and the cabinet meeting held on Wednesday, November 26, had given approval to make the height public.


During Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to Nepal in 2019, it was agreed to jointly declare the new height of Everest.

The government has given approval to declare a new height of Everest. A cabinet meeting on Wednesday announced the new height of Mount Everest. The meeting on Tuesday approved the Ministry of Land Management, Cooperatives and Poverty Alleviation, a minister said.

At the meeting, Land Management Minister Padmakumari Aryal had submitted a vertical proposal seeking approval to declare the new height of Everest. The ministry’s proposal was not on the meeting’s written agenda.

The cabinet has approved to declare the height on the basis of a vertical proposal. However, the ministers have not been informed about the height of Mount Everest.

According to sources, the height of Sagarmatha has increased. As Nepal and China have agreed to jointly declare the height of Mount Everest, it has not been made public yet.

According to officials, the announcement may be made during the upcoming visit of the Chinese Defense Minister to Nepal. The ministry has also said that it will announce the new height of Everest in a few days through a formal program.

Ministry spokesperson Janak Raj Joshi also said that technical work on the height has been completed and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will coordinate with China for the announcement.

About Me

I was born in Neelkanth Municipality, Dhading District, Nepal. My childhood was spent there for 10 years from birth. Since then, I have been living in Kathmandu with my whole family. Since my father works in the trekking sector, it was natural to go on different trekking routes. I also wanted to go on a trip with my father, but since Baba was affiliated with the company, Baba could not take me even if he wanted to. This is what made me a solo traveler and I have been able to travel almost all over Nepal till today.
