This weekend May 29th marks the 69th anniversary of my father Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary’s historic ascent of Chomolungma (Everest) in 1953. At that time, it was the closest that man had been to the moon. The lure of Chomolungma today remains insatiable. More than 325 permits were issued this spring to climb the mother Goddess, with a handsome yield of $3.3m for the Government of Nepal in licensing fees.
