    Mt Everest is not in tibet. The way the information is being shown is wrong.It says Mt Everest,Tibet. Mt Everest is in Nepal.Though it is accessible and can be seen from Tibet.Mt Everest lies in Nepal.I would be glad if the information is corrected.

    Thanks for your comment, but you are wrong. The border between Nepal and Tibet goes exactly over Mt Everest, the summit is in both countries. So roughly half is in Tibet, the other half in Nepal, see also the Everest guidebook
