May 18,2017--A team of 22 Chinese mountaineers are expected to reach the summit of Qomolangma, known as Mount Everest in the West, by Thursday, according to a report on xzxw.com.

The team had reached a base camp at 6,500 meters by Sunday and was due to continue its ascent to the peak between Monday and Thursday.

Nine Sherpa guides prepared the climbing route on the north slope of Qomolangma in the Tibet autonomous region.

At 8:20 am on Saturday, an Indian climber became the first this spring to reach the peak.

At a height of 8,844 meters, Qomolangma is the world's highest mountain and attracts thousands of visitors, hikers and mountaineers from around the world every year.

An estimated 400 domestic and overseas mountaineers will climb the world’s tallest peaks this spring, which also includes Cho Oyu (8,201 meters) and Shishapangma (8,012 meters), which are both in Tibet.
