The world's tallest mountain, Mount Everest, moved during the earthquake in Nepal in April, according to Chinese media.

According to the China Daily the 8848 meter high mountain was pushed 3 centimeters southwest by the earthquake, which was measured to a magnitude of 7.8.

Mount Everest has long been heading northeast, but the earthquake reversed this, said China's national center for surveying, mapping and geo information.

The mountain has moved 40 centimeters northeast over the last decade at a rate of 4 centimeters a year. It has also risen by 3 centimeters during the same period.

Two powerful earthquakes, on April 25 and on May 12, killing more than 8,700 people in Nepal, triggered a series of large landslides and destroyed half a million homes.
