Eminent historian, Baburam Acharya coined the name “Sagarmatha” in Nepali Language, where “Sagar” means the sky and “Matha” means above, for which there is believe that the Mt.Everest is above the sky.
For local Sherpa people, it is called as “Chomolungma”, means the mother goddess of the earth. Everest base camp, shortly termed as EBC describes two base camps, south base camp and north base camp from its south and north pole respectively.
