Mt. Everest

Introduction:

Mt. Everest is the tallest mountain on Earth. It reaches 29,035 ft tall so, that would be a long hike but a great adventure. Mt. Everest was formed 60 million years ago so it's a huge part of the world's history. Just so you can find it, the location is: -27 59'N, 86 56'E. Hope you have a fun hike!

Packing List:

First, we better get you prepared for what to pack.

Travel Tips:

Just to warn you!

1) Watch out for Summit Fever! Don't push yourself that extra 10 minutes if you don't feel up for it!

2) Falling- yes, it's very likely you could fall so be extra careful!

3) It's cold! Temperature drops roughly 0.65c per 100 meters! That means you will have to dress in lots of layers!

Opportunities Mt. Everest Brings to Earth:

Some opportunities Mt. Everest brings to Earth is recreation- people can go hiking which is a form of recreation and another is rocks (minerals)- the mountain is made up of sandstone, silt stone, sedimentary rock, granite and metamorphic rock. These are some opportunities Mt. Everest brings to Earth.

Challenges Mt. Everest Brings to Earth:

Along with opportunities, there is challenges we face due to Mt. Everest. One of the challenges is avalanches- it is twice as likely to encounter an avalanche than falling on the slopes of Everest. They're all necessary to cross and there's not a lot anyone can do to control the mountain itself but can help by minimizing your time in those areas. Also, crevasses are challenges we face. Crevasses- great cracks that appear in glacial ice, which threaten to swallow careless or unfortunate travelers. Some teams tie ropes to each other just in case if one person falls, they can drag them right back up.

Opportunities the Sahara Desert Brings to Earth:

The Sahara does give Earth some opportunities. One is, hiking across- recreation. Many people trek (hike) across the Sahara. Another is the Nile River- even though deserts are not very known for a great amount of water, there is the Nile River in this desert. The river provides food (fishing) and water. Also, camels- camels are very good for traveling in the desert and the Sahara has many!

Challenges the Sahara Desert Brings to Earth:

Challenges! In this situation, there is quite a few challenges. The lack of water- with exception of the Nile River, Sahara's rivers and streams are irregular or seasonal. And, limited vegetation- good luck surviving if you don't have enough food! In the desert, there isn't enough food to survive due to harsh conditions. Lastly, sandstorms- winds can lead to sandstorms (very dangerous). Those are some challenges we face.
