As of April 2016, more than 4000 people have attempted to climb Mount Everest.  Annually around 800 people make the attempt which include Sherpas, clients, and professional climbers.

The year 2017 had the second most summits at 648 after 658 in 2013. 61% of the climbers who climbed reached to the top of Everest. 446 of the climbers were from south side and 202 from the north side in 2017.

Did you know?

There are about 200-dead bodies in the mountain, and the bodies now help other climbers to know they are on the right path or not. Those bodies are left there due to the poor weather and bringing them down is very dangerous. Looking back to the history, 4% of the climbers those who have made it to the summit have died.

Dead guy.

Damn place is like being in line at Disney World or something.

Thar she is.

Gimme a holler.
