The Nepal government on Tuesday revealed that the revised height of mount Everest, the tallest peak in the world, is 8,848.86 metres.
Nepal decided to re-measure the peak after speculations that the widely accepted height might not be the actual height after the 2015 earthquake. Officials of the government had coordinated with China, who sent its own team to measure the height of the Everest.
