How did George Mallory explain the lure of Mount Everest?

In many ways, but perhaps most famously (and flippantly), in 1923, he quipped: "Because it's there."

Later, however, he shared his truer reasons with the New York Times and said:

The first question which you will ask and which I must try to answer is this, "What is the use of climbing Mount Everest?" and my answer must at once be, "It is no use." There is not the slightest prospect of any gain whatsoever. Oh, we may learn a little about the behavior of the human body at high altitudes, and possibly medical men may turn our observation to some account for the purposes of aviation. But otherwise nothing will come of it. We shall not bring back a single bit of gold or silver, not a gem, nor any coal or iron. We shall not find a single foot of earth that can be planted with crops to raise food. It's no use. So, if you cannot understand that there is something in man which responds to the challenge of this mountain and goes out to meet it, that the struggle is the struggle of life itself upward and forever upward, then you won't see why we go. What we get from this adventure is just sheer joy. And joy is, after all, the end of life. We do not live to eat and make money. We eat and make money to be able to enjoy life. That is what life means and what life is for.

Who was the first person to climb Everest and when?

There is evidence, but no conclusive proof that an Englishman by the name of George Mallory and partner Andrew Irvivine reached the summit in 1924. Mallory and Irvine were last sighted from teir base camp just short of the summit and looked certain to make it. They never returned from that climb so there can be no conclusive proof. George Mallory's frozen remains were discovered on Everest on May 2, 1999, 75 years after his disappearance. His body remains on Everest where it was found.

This means that the 29th May, 1953 summit by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay (who reached the top together) is recognised as the first time the peak was conquered.
Edmund Hillary reached the summit of Mount Everest first on the 29th May 1953

Who was the first to climb Mount Everest without oxygen?

In 1978, Reinhold Messner reached the summit of Everest with Peter Habeler without using supplementary oxygen. This was the first time anyone had been that high without artificial breathing apparatus and Messner and Habeler proved what most doctors, specialists, and mountaineers thought impossible. It changed mountaineering forever. Messner repeated the feat, without Habeler, from the Tibetan side in 1980, during the monsoon season. This was Everest's first solo summit.

The boiling point of water is different at murree hill and at Mount Everest?

As increase in altitude decreases atmospheric pressure so liquids boil at low temperature.The atmospheric pressure at mount Everest (8850m above sea level) is 34kpa therefore,waters boils at 70c.While,vapour pressure at murree(2291m above sea level) is 82kpa so,boiling point is 98c.
