TripAdvisor Reviews The Silver Star Srinagar

... Nevis, Scotland, which sits at 1,344 metres (4,400 feet) above sea level. It really took my breath away with the air being so thin at this altitude. Just the short scramble and wander around left me gasping. It makes you appreciate how hard it must be for people who climb the "eight thousanders". These being the group of peaks in the Himalayan and Karakoram mountain ranges that are 8000 metres or higher, known as the "death zone". Mount Everest is one of these ...
