It is worth death and destruction when it comes to climbing up Mount Everest? If one was to go through the expedition up Mount Everest they would be challenging themselves to see what they got into. One would know what they’re getting into there would for sure go through a lot like having to face what they call the Death Zone. Once they’re up there, their body will end up heating up since they’ve been out in the cold for so long. Then the Death Zone is, oxygen is so limited that the body cells start to die. 

Climbers’ judgment becomes impaired, and they can experience heart attacks, strokes, or severe altitude sickness. People usually think they succeeded when they get to the summit but others are motivated to keep going and make it to the top of Mount Everest. There might not be a prize or anything once you get to the top but just experiencing how easy or hard it was is what one would want. Nothing but excitement should be felt, because who wouldn’t want to tell others or even their kids, family what they have done or accomplished in their life. George Miliary climbed up Mount Everest and what he had to say about it was, “What we get from this adventure is just sheer joy. And joy is, after all, the end of life. I know if I was to climb Mount Everest I would be proud to even be willing to do it. Long story short one should Climb Mount Everest doesn’t matter if there is no reward, at the end, it’s all about the experience and feeling you will have.
