Seemingly it has only four elements, though, if we go on exploring it, it looks never ending. Nature is exceptionally extensive. One of the most widespread compositions of nature is the large mountains over the globe. These mountains are certainly beautiful snow covered or forested masses, though they are enormous and powerful. Some of the mountains are unbelievably high and vast. Being a part of this extensive nature we must be aware of its magnificence. Amazingly, most of them are an extension of the Great Himalayas.

With an incredible height of 8,848m (29,029 ft) Mount Everest is the world’s highest mountain peak. It is a parent mountain for many hundreds of other peaks.  Expeditions to Everest were made since 1921, though the first successful one was only possible in 1953, which was by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay. It is located in the Mahalangur section of the Himalayas and the border between China and Nepal runs across it. It received its name from Andrew Waugh who named it after his predecessor Sir George Everest. Though there have been many partially and completely successful attempts to climb the Everest the most recent and amazing one is by Arunima Sinha. She is the first female Amputee and also the first Indian Amputee to climb Mount Everest.

With a height of 8,611 m (28,251 ft), K2 is the second highest mountain peak in the world. It is located on the border of Baltistan, and China. It is also the highest point in Pakistan. K2 is known as the Savage Mountain due to the extreme difficulty of climbing it. Many people have died in attempt to climb it. It is more difficult to ascent it from the side towards China, so it is mostly climbed from the Pakistani side. Though attempts were made by many since 1856 to climb this great mass of nature, only in 1954 did a successful ascent to it was made.
