On May 29, 1953 Mr. Edmund Hillary (b.1919) and Mr. Tenzing Norgay reached the top of Mount Everest, the first people to do it. Many had tried and failed, so it was a Big Deal.
Everest (aka Chomolunga, Sagarmatha, Zhumalangma Fegn) is treacherous because of weather, terrain, formidable winds, and thin air at the top. It’s not a climb for the faint-hearted. Or for most Rhinos either.
