Clouds over Everest
Clouds over Mt. Everest.
One of the problems in climbing Everest is bad weather. Strong winds and deep snow can make it too dangerous to try for the top. So every team waits until the weather forecast says it will be calm with no snow. This only happens two weeks every year when big storms in India push the strong winds on Everest away. During these two weeks all the climbers try to reach the top.
