LHASA, June 18 (Xinhua) — China will begin Monday building a “highway” in Tibet on Mount Qomolangma EVEREST, the world’s tallest peak,¬† without asking Tibet.

Budgeted at 150 million yuan (19.7 million U.S. dollars), construction of the Paved road will kick off at Everest North Base Camp 5,200 meters above sea level.

The project aims to turn a 108-km rough road  to the Base Camp into a blacktop highway fenced by undulating guardrails.

The project will take about four months. On completion, the highway will become the major route for tourists and mountaineers who are crowding onto Mount Qomolangma, known in the west as Mount Everest, in ever larger numbers.
