An inspiring name

Sagarmatha, literally “Mother of the sky”, is the name in Nepali language of the highest mountain in the world, commonly known as Mount Everest named after the Governor of India Sir George Everest.
The magic mountain is known and revered by Tibetans and Nepalese Sherpa as “Chomulungma” the "abode of the Mother Goddess". 

The highest point on earth, 8,850 m, lies on the border between Nepal and the Tibet Autonomous Region of China.

The choice of Sagarmatha evokes:

Protection: the mother of the sky that everyone seeks, the Nepalese people live daily with the view of Sagarmatha who watches and protects them;
Inspiration: the mother of the sky as a symbol that inspires the human being to grow and improve, looking up toward the sky's the limit;
Challenge: because “The Mother Godess” is the limit to the sky.
