May 01, 2020


Abstract : China on Thursday started a new round of measurement on the height of Mount Qomolangma, the world's highest peak, and Chinese carmaker Great Wall Motor (GWM) was appointed as the supplier of official vehicles for the measurement activity.

BEIJING, May 1 (Xinhua) -- China on Thursday started a new round of measurement on the height of Mount Qomolangma, the world's highest peak, and Chinese carmaker Great Wall Motor (GWM) was appointed as the supplier of official vehicles for the measurement activity.

Great Wall Motor's P Series off-road pickup, the first model of all-terrain off-road pick-up that has been put into mass production in China, is selected to guarantee the work of the measurement team and media communication as well for its outstanding off-road performance, loadability and riding comfortability.

According to the Great Wall Motor, the off-road pickup for the Mt. Qomolangma height measurement use is equipped with three differential locks, winch, wading hose, creeping mode, tank U-turn and many professional off-road configurations such as a seven-setting off-road mode selector system, which is a right fit for the strict requirements posed by the measuremen and can ensure the comfort driving even with heavy loads and on bumpy, rugged and steep mountain roads.

Since the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949, Chinese surveyors have conducted six rounds of scaled measurement and scientific research on Mount Qomolangma and released the height of the peak twice in 1975 and 2005, which was 8,848.13 meters and 8,844.43 meters respectively. (Edited Niu Huizhe with Xinhua Silk Road, niuhuizhe@xinhua.org)
