Mountaineering is essentially the sport that involves climbing mountains, although climbing per se is a much wider activity. The world's highest mountain is Mount Everest in the Himalayas on the border between China and Nepal. It was first successfully climbed in 1953 by Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary.
