Mount Everest has been affected by tourism over the years. The bad thing about it is the amount of rubbish that climbers/hikers leave behind. The good thing is that tourism brings in much needed money for the local people.
Many people have climbed the Mount Everest. The first one person to climb the Mount Everest was an Italian climber called Reinhold Messner and Peter Habeler. Since then a total of 1500 people have climbed the Mount Everest.
Mount Everest was discovered by a man named Sir George Everest, which is where it gets its name from. People In Nepal call the Mount Everest "Sagarmatha" and people in Tibet call the mountain Chomolangma or Qomolangma
