Thanks to a group of scientists that installed weather stations on Everest last month, we can now see the conditions on the world’s highest mountain in real time. The team led by the National Geographic Society and Tribhuvan University installed two weather monitoring stations at 27,657 feet and 26,066 feet, as well as three other stations across the mountain.

The National Geographic, who led the expedition, has a widget on their website with live weather conditions reporting from those stations. Check it out here, and bookmark it. You never know when you might need to know the wind speed at the top of the world…

  1. I am impressed that they can design a weather station that can handle the tough conditions on the summit of Mount Everest. By Gregg L. Friedman MD

  2. Humans are often filthy, ego driven, and totally unsympathetic at times and it appears even more true when they pay for the right to climb a mountain they should be responsible for their own bodily waste, rubbish and only leave footprints.
    No amount of money should be able to buy their exemption from polluting a not only beautiful but sacred place. Just like in Australia we have banned the right to climb Uluru, respecting the indigenous peoples and protecting the rock from damage, so should the climbing of mountains. There are hundreds of ways to enjoy experience Nepal and its mountains thereby still using Sherpas and providing jobs…so dont be an ego driven westerner…. show some bloody respect.
    Noone cares if you’ve stood on the highest mountain…just your ego.

Got an opinion? Let us know...
