Himalayas naming

The name Chomolungma was on a map published by the French geographer Jean-Baptiste Bourgeois D’Anville in Paris in 1733. The local name of this mountain is Gaurishankar, which was mistaken for a number of European maps of the late nineteenth century, especially the one between Kathmandu and Everest.

In 1865 AD, on the recommendation of Andrew Scott Wahr, Surveyor General of India, the Royal Geographical Society renamed the 15th peak of its predecessor, George Everest, Mount Everest. An Indian survey in 1955 estimated the height of the peak at 8,848 m. (29,029 ft), which was confirmed by a Chinese survey in 1975.
