People who travel to Everest always find that there is some milky cloud of smoke floating on the top of the mountain when the weather is serene. That kind of flag-like cloud is so called banner cloud which shaped by the convection clouds.
Generally speaking, climbers can deduce the wind-force of the top based on the floating points and height. If the waving banner cloud lifts upward, it means the wind is weaker in upper air but stronger in lower air. In another hand, as the banner cloud stay the same level with the top of the Everest, the wind almost reaches 9. That's why the banner cloud is also famous for the highest Wind Vane in the World.
