Have a look at google maps... that land north of Asia is *cleared*. Some of it is marked as "Everest" by good-meaning (but misinformed) google volunteers. It's clearly not Everest (which is visible nearby). So what *is* it for??
It was cleared at the time of Asia's construction. Originally, it would've been used for the Tiger River Run ride that was later slashed and became Kali. It was used for staging during the construction of EE.
