    With the development of human history, there are already many mountains that have been conquered, even the 8,844-meter-high Mount Everest; there are new conquerors every year. But at the same time, there are many peaks that have never been conquered. For example, the famous tallest unclimbed mountain we are going to talk about today is 7570 meters tall, which is 1274 meters shorter than Mount Everest’s 8844 meters (Chinese standard). So far no one has succeeded in reaching the summit. Expeditions from many countries have tried many times to reach the summit but have failed.

    In addition, because of insufficient preparations, the first mountaineering team that tried to climb to the top could not even find the location of the mountain. After the map of this area was completed in recent years, the mountain was marked in all aspects. After that, let the later people at least not get lost when they want to climb the mountain. In fact, as early as 1986, people always thought that the height of this mountain was 7550 meters, which was 20 meters away from the current measured height. Scientists estimate that the current 7570 meters still have an error. After all, no one has ever climbed to the top to measure it. , So the error is naturally normal.
