I don’t think climbing Mount Everest is worth the risk. At 29,035 feet altitude, it is the highest elevation place in the entire world. This elevation is bad for the human body, because it is used to the air pressure at sea level. A climber could get some serious future problems by attempting to climb Mount Everest. Four in a hundred people who climb Mount Everest die on that mountain, and are unable to be recovered, their loved ones never seeing them again. The weather is another problem. It is generally unpredictable, changing erratically. Sixteen sherpas (who are natives) died when they were trying to bring supplies to a camp. If a trained person who has been training and climbing the mountain since childhood could die here, then I don’t think the chances of normal person surviving are too good. When a climber climbs high enough, they will reach the death zone of Everest, where there is barely enough air to sustain a human. The air pressure has killed many climbers. Also high up, climbers will have to navigate to a part of the mountain like a knife edge, where a single slip could send you flying down thousands of feet. It is not worth it, and too dangerous. I think no one should climb it, unless you have a death wish.
