About this Product

The Nepalese call Mt. Everest "Samgarmatha" ("Goddess of the Universe" or literally “Forehead of the Sky”) and Sherpas and Tibetans call it "Qomolangma" ("Goddess Mother of the Land"). For them the mountain is sacred and climbing it was never considered. According to a Sherpa legend, Mt. Everest is the home of a goddess bearing a bowl of food and a mongoose spitting jewels.

Mt. Everest has two main climbing routes, the southeast ridge from Nepal and the north ridge from Tibet, as well as many other less frequently climbed routes. Of the two main routes, the southeast ridge is technically easier and is the more frequently used route. This was Edmund Hillary’s and Tenzing Norgay’s route during the first recorded successful summit in 1953 and the first recognized of fifteen routes to the top by 1996.

Our model of Mt. Everest covers 330 square km in area and spans 4.6 vertical km. It includes the entirety of the Mt. Everest massif (Nuptse, Lhotse, Peak 38, and Shartse on the South Ridge, the West Ridge towering above Rongbuk Glacier and Khumbu Ice Falls, Northeast and Fantasy Ridge, and across the North Col to Changtse), plus numerous nearby peaks and ridges, including Khumbutse, Lingtren, and Pumori to the Northwest, Chukhung and Pokalde to the Southwest, and Island Peak and Cho Polu under Lhotse's massive South face.

TinyMtn models are most affordable in the "Sandstone" and "White Strong and Flexible" materials. This model is in "Sandstone," which is a glued gypsum material. When you receive the model it will be ready for display, though it may smell funny and need some time to air out. "Sandstone" models are much more brittle than "White Strong and Flexible" models, but feel more like light stone. Do not soak it in water, though you can safely seal it with Polycrylic or a similar water-based clear spray sealant. Read more about this popular material here.

These models have been optimized for the above materials, and are not offered in other materials for strength or cost reasons. If you need one in another material, please contact us and we'll do our best to fulfill your request.
