In addition, over 20 kinds of fossils are there serving as evidences. The stratigraphic sequences ranging from Cambrian to Tertiary have been quite completely established over there. In Stratigraphy of the Mount Qomolangma Region, all the reports with their text-figures and tables can be said to be the most comprehensive and systematical stratigraphic works about the Mt.
