The highest peak all over the globe is situated on the Nepal-Tibet border.  The height of Mount Everest reaches 8,850 meters. It is the highest mountain in the world. And this is not the limit! In fact, it is still growing by about 4 millimeters a year, constantly moving up due to the movement of tectonic plates. Journey to Everest will lead to a colorful tent city and a truly amazing view of the mountains.

2. Mexico City

While Mount Everest is growing up, Mexico City plunges into the water on 10 cm each year, which is 10 times faster than Venice. Why is this happening? Construction of buildings on soft sediments of lake ore with pumping out water reserves is a very bad idea.

The evidence for this are the broken sidewalks, buildings that can collapse at any moment, and 23 additional steps to El Ángel de la Independencia (the Angel of Independence monument), because they were added due to the fact that the city fell below. All this shows flooding of the city. But a walk along the ancient waterways Hochimilko will help you to forget all horrible facts.
