They do realize that some of the other mountains don’t have the base camp facilities when compared to their big brother, and of course nothing can really replace climbing to the top of the world’s tallest mountain. However, there’s over 1,500 snow covered mountains in the Himalayas and only a little over 300 of them are open for business.

Even if you’re sold on Everest alone, maybe stick around and head to the top of another one too—it’s not that hard to climb to another, right?
