Chinese Surveyors Summit Everest for height check

As planned, the Chinese team of eight surveyors summited Everest, after their guides fixed the route.

They left Camp 3 (8,300m), which they had reached around 4pm on , at 2:10am today, and reached the summit at 11am local time.

They erected a surveyor’s beacon on the summit. Together with the BeiDou-3 Navigation Satellite receivers, 3D interactive virtual reality, an airborne gravimeter, snow-depth radar and other instruments, it will measure the exact height of Everest.
