Country high point
- Based on elevation of snow cap, not rock head. For more details, see Measurement.
- The position of the summit of Everest on the international border is clearly shown on detailed topographic mapping, including official Nepalese mapping.
- The WGS84 coordinates given here were calculated using detailed topographic mapping and are in agreement with adventurestats. They are unlikely to be in error by more than 2". Coordinates showing Everest to be more than a minute further east that appeared on this page until recently, and still appear in Wikipedia in several other languages, are incorrect.
