Mount Everest is a peak in the Himalaya mountain range, it is considered as the tallest point on the planet Earth (8,849 meters). At the top of Mount Everest, there is only one third of the oxygen available as there is at sea level. How does it feel like when you are at the top of Mount Everest? According to mountaineer and filmmaker David Breashears , it is like "running on a treadmill and breathing through a straw,". Scientist and mountaineers called everything above 8,000 meters "the Death Zone", in the Death Zone, the oxygen level is very limited that human's brain cells start to die and bodies would not be able to function normally, it is definately one of the most dangerous mountains to visit on Earth.
