For a look at some of the breathtaking views of it’s peaks and valleys, without the need for an oxygen tank, check out the slideshow below.

    i think that it is a bad idea to climb to the top what is the big idea people want to live to have kids and family moments so if I were you I would not climb mount everest.

    I dont think they should climb Mount Everest because they could die and get injured really bad but in a way I think they should climb Mount Everest they could be famous and get all the attention of the world but is his life worth attention and being famous.
