 A Chinese surveying team has reached the summit of Mount Qomolangma to conduct a series of surveys on the pinnacle of the planet.

 
The event marked a crucial step in China's mission to remeasure the height of the world's highest peak, which scientists believe will enhance human knowledge of nature and help boost scientific development.
 
After reaching the summit on Wednesday morning, team members began erecting a survey marker on the snow-covered peak, which measures less than 20 square meters.
 
The surveying team set off for the summit from an assault camp at an altitude of 8,300 meters at about two o'clock in the morning.
