This is what the Mt Everest climbing route looks like.

Summit (29,029 ft) – Highest point on Earth, located in the “Death Zone,” where oxygen levels are critically low. It includes the Hillary Step, a nearly vertical rock face climbed with fixed ropes, known for being a bottleneck due to its one-climber-at-a-time capacity.

Camp IV (26,085 ft) – First camp within the Death Zone where climbers can no longer acclimatize due to the extreme altitude.

Camp III (23,625 ft) –  A steep and icy section known as the ‘Lhotse Face’ that climbers must navigate on their way to the summit.

A total of 330 people have died on the top of Mount Everest.That enough is a red flag.The mountain is 8,849 m tall.At the peak, oxygen levels are extremely low.
