65th Years Of Mt. Everest Summit

29th May 1953: The first successful attempt to Mt Everest summit was done by Sir Edmund Hillary & Sir Tenzing Norgay. I always write Sir for both because I strongly believe that Sherpas are the real heroes of mountains. Without them, no ascent was possible nor will be possible. 
Today on the 65th anniversary of this historical climb, Let's remember and pay gratitude to all those who lost their lives working on Everest to fix routes for climbers. The Great Sherpas & all Climbers who had the courage to face the great Chomolungma
