The demand to reach one of Everest’s summits is fast growing. In 2019, 955 people attempted to reach the summit, up from 222 in the year 2000.

In terms of summit success rates, statistics show that it has gone down in the last 15 years. Between 2006 and 2009, two thirds of its climbers were successful in their attempts, while in the last 15 years this rate has gone down to about one third.
