Kathmandu: Government of Nepal is working out for the announcement of the new height of Mount Everest. The cabinet meeting of Ministers have recently agreed to the proposal of Ministry of Land Management about revealing the new height of world's tallest mountain.
In May 2019, two government surveyors from Nepal and China had successfully scaled Mount Everest collecting data for the measurement of height.
The government of Nepal had decided to measure height of Everest amid debates that the height may have been changed due to various reasons including devastating earthquake of 2015. The current height of Everest is 8848m.
According to the sources, the height of Everest may have been increased. Nepal and China will jointly announce the new height of Everest soon.
