Name The Banner Cloud in Mt.Everest

Mt.Everest,which name has the same meaning of goddess, located in Himalayas,the boundary of the PRC and Nepal, full of ice all year around. It is well known for the height of 8844.43m and listed in the top 10 mountains in China so that a large number of travelers flocking there every year.
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.
So next time when you have your Tibet travel and climb the snowy mountain of Himalaya, please pay attention to the banner cloud which may help you with your trip.But there are also lots of people take the banner cloud as beautiful and unique scenery. The best time to catch the banner cloud is in April, May, September and October.the Weather at that time is much better than others.
