MOUNT Everest is not only the point and height of the Nepal only but the person who reach there also becomes as popular as the mount Everest. It’s the succeeding point and succession plan to reach there. The height of the person denotes the person’s work and creates the new identity. A person has many things that make them popular after achieving the artificial success. But to climb on the mount Everest is regarded as the natural success which does not have any cost of success.
