Everest VR Experience
The moment players put on their VR headset they are teleported to the base camp on the Mount Everest, where players get the sensational feeling that they are about to embark on a fatal journey. The first few minutes are taken up in figuring out the game’s controls, although standard for VR users but can take up time for the first time VR users.

VR game EVEREST VR will make players to walk alongside steep narrow cliffs and over ladder to cross a small ravine which provide players with breathtaking and dangerous experience, especially at the point when crossing a temporary extension that will make players feel like they are plunging to their demise.
Every scene begins and feel like a little theater and the players will first believe in a film being played on the screen which then suddenly turn into a reality. Players can sense the immense distances, scale and the beauty of the scenery before them. It’s a remarkable experience as players make the climb.
One of the most wonderful experience during the gameplay that we encountered during EVEREST VR review was the overnighting at Camp 4 as the players see tents lit up from within like these are minimal hued lamps spread over the snow. There was likewise another part with a great experience, where the players have to physically move inside their tent and in order to accomplish that the player has to physically change their stance.
