On the border of Tibet and Nepal, the highest mountain peak in the world (26,035 feet) has been defined by Forbes as nature’s most magnificent creation.
“Certainly it is the raison d’etre in the climbing world,” writes Beth Greenfield of Forbes who has named Bordeaux in France, Tuscany in Italy, Petra in Jordan, Torres del Paine National Park in South America, Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, Midway Island in the United States, Fire Island in New York, Plain of Temples, in Myanmar and Okavango Delta in Botswana as the other nine stunning travel destinations around the world.
Greenfield‘s discovery of places ranges from remote natural wonders to glittering cities.
Greenfield has even translated the Tibetan word for Everest Chomolungma, as ‘Mother of the Universe,’ and the Nepalese Sagarmatha as ‘Goddess of the Sky.’
Both names are perfectly fitting, as there is no other mountain as grand as Everest, says Greenfield.THT ONLINE
