Climbing Everest

Audiobook

Learn about Climbing Everest with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series.

Mount Everest is situated in the Himalayan Mountains, on the border between Nepal and Tibet. It is the tallest mountain in the world, standing roughly 29,029 feet above sea level. Every year, Mount Everest gets taller by about half an inch. This is due to movements in the Earth's crust and two tectonic plates, deep beneath the Earth's surface, pushing together. The name "Himalaya" means "home of snow", but snow is only one of the many challenges faced by a climber of Mount Everest.

The danger with snow is that there is always the risk of an avalanche. Snow, ice and rocks can slide down the mountain at speeds of up to 120 miles per hour. Temperature is also a concern.

Perfect to listen to while commuting, exercising, shopping or cleaning the house.. iMinds brings knowledge to your MP3 with 8 minute information segments to whet your mental appetite and broaden your mind.
