Mt. Everest is the highest mountain in the world. It is 29,000 feet (or 8,848 meters) high. Many people tried to climb Mt. Everest, but nobody could get to the top. Some people died climbing there. In May 1953, two men reached the top. They were Edmund Hillary, from New Zealand, and Tenzing Norgay, from Nepal.
