It is beautiful to look at, hard to reach, and terribly difficult to climb. Winds of 200 kilometres per hour or more scream across it day and night, while temperature falls to -20 °C or lower. Every year, some who try to climb the highest mountain in the world do not return.
But for a century people have been coming to climb Everest - some alone, some in groups, but all with a dream of going to the highests place in the world. This is their story.
Factfiles are non-fiction books. They provide up-to-date information supported by high-quality colour photos. A good choice for the CLIL classroom.
