Response to Tibetan vs. Nepalese vs. Chinese names
I am always getting messages from the "Free Tibet" folks to say Everest is in Tibet.
I find it interesting that China wants its own name on the peak rather than the Tibet name Chomolungma or the Nepal name Sagarmatha.
Most climbers I've heard who have climbed Mount McKinley call it Denali.
By the same standard if there was going to be a name change either the Tibet or the Nepal name would be much more suitable than the Chinese version.
