It is understood that my country’s surveying and mapping workers have carried out six large-scale surveying, mapping and scientific research work on Mount Everest, and successfully measured and announced the height of Mount Everest twice in 1975 and 2005. In 1975, when the height of Mt. Everest was measured, my country erected a measuring target on the top of Mt. Everest for the first time, and accurately measured the altitude of Mt. Everest as 8848.13 meters. In 2005, the height of Mount Everest was re-measured. For the first time, the ice and snow radar detector was used to measure the thickness of ice and snow in the measurement of Mount Everest. After rigorous calculation, the elevation of the rock face of Mount Everest was 8844.43 meters above sea level. The measurement of Mount Everest in different ways in different periods, as well as the multiple measurements of the height of Mount Everest, have become an important symbol for human beings to understand and understand the earth.
Facing the special and arduous task of measuring the altitude of Mount Everest again, Great Wall Motor’s Great Wall Cannon off-road pickup has undertaken the glorious mission of measuring “China’s new height”, and will work with it as a safe, comfortable and brave golden partner. Together with national surveying and mapping workers, it demonstrates human beings’ spirit of seeking knowledge and exploring nature.
