Fossils are found on Everest due to moving plates. Mountains are made by plates pushing together, causing the earth to push as well, and ending up with large piles of earth. This happens everywhere, and mountains and countries are formed places even where it is mainly a large expanse of water. This causes dead Sea creatures to be carried up too, causing the remainders to be found several million years later.

In this case, Everest was formed when India's' and Asia's plates crashed together.

People have said that this is due to Noah's flood; however scientific evidence points that actually the cause of fossils being found on Everest was actually plate tectonics. It is the same sort of effect if you push together the sides of a peace of paper of material- the section in the middle will rise up- this is the mountain.
