Yes it continues to grow at the rate you noted. Burt is is amazing how the earth continues to move beneath our feet bot because of nature and because of things we have as humans have done.<br />
I love these tidbits and am always curious to hear new ones and thanks for sharing this one with all of us.

that could be it. but its growing about 2 cm year because india is still moving. and i think it might be at a slight angle which might have caused the shift in position.

Is that in latitude? I thought it had grown 7 feet in height since Sir Edmund Hillary climbed it (or maybe because of bettr GPS readings).
