Product Description

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.

This model of Mt. Everest covers 110 square km in area and spans 3.7 vertical km. It includes most of the Mt. Everest massif (Nuptse, Lhotse, Peak 38, and Shartse on the South Ridge, the West Ridge towering above Rongbuk Glacier, Northeast and Fantasy Ridge, and across the North Col to Changtse). Everest's gigantic East face boasts a vertical rise of 3350m (11,000') in a similar horizontal distance.

The Explorer series of TinyMtn models is designed to break our usual impression of mountains. We generally see mountains one at a time, from a distance, and from the ground. While all TinyMtn models give you a fresh perspective on any one peak, the Explorer series presents mountains in identical scale, and shifted up so that sea level is at the bottom of the base. Thus, when you set two Explorer models next to each other, you will immediately notice which is taller, which rises more from its base, which is more massive, and so on. Plus, all Explorer models come in full color, making them just that much more realistic.

Model scale is 1:250000
Model covers an area approximately 10.5 by 10.5 km
Altitudes covered: 5136m to 8848m
There is no vertical exaggeration applied to this model. This is a true-to-life scale model of a real place.

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.
