Nepal and China together can soon announce the new height of Mount Everest, the world's highest mountain peak. The announcement is to be made under an agreement reached between the two nations last year. This Chinese effort is seen as a new attempt to meddle in Nepal. However, China's Ministry of Natural Resources and Nepal's Ministry of Earth Management, Cooperation, has denied any such announcement. Let us know that on 13 October 2019 last year, an agreement was reached between the two nations to measure the height of Mount Everest. According to Article 1 of this agreement, China and Nepal will jointly declare the height of Mount Zhumulangma / Mount Sagarmatha. For this, both countries will decide the date and time according to mutual convenience. The joint measurement of Mount Everest is not mentioned in this agreement, but there is definitely a talk of mutual contribution.
According to Article 5 of this agreement, the two countries will develop a mutual contribution mechanism for the survey, mapping, and geoinformation management of Mount Everest.

For this, he sent an expedition to the top last year. At the same time, China also sent an expedition from Tibet to measure the height of Everest this year.

China’s claim to make this peak its own will accelerate after the joint declaration of the height of Mount Everest with Nepal. The elevation of Mount Everest is currently believed to be 8,848 meters.
