Partnership Forged in Ascent of Everest The Nepali Association celebrated the 61st anniversary of Ed Hillary and Tenzing Norgay conquering the world’s highest peak over Queen’s Birthday weekend. The climbers’ partnership laid the foundation for an enduring relationship between their two countries, Nepal and New Zealand. It was fascinating to listen to Peter Hillary together with Michael Alsop and Peter Cammel, Kiwis who have all reached the top of Everest. It was a sad occasion too as the loss of the 16 Sherpas helping others to climb the mountain in April this year was commemorated. I talked about what made us so proud about Hillary.

At 29,028 feet (8,848 meters), Mount Everest is the tallest mountain of the world. It is considered one of the most challenging mountains to climb, and is part of the Seven Summits, which have the highest peaks on each continent. Though it's impossible to say how many people have reached Everest's summit at any given time since the number changes every year, as of September 2011 over 3,100 climbers from over 20 countries had made over 5,100 recorded climbs, mostly after 2000 CE. As of 2012 there were over 220 recorded fatalities, most of which took place before 1990. Changes in climbing equipment led to a sharp drop in fatalities in the 2000s, with the death rate dropping from 37% in 1990 to about 4.4% in 2004. Notable Ascents The first officially recorded summit was accomplished by Sir Edmund Percival Hillary from New Zealand and Tenzing Norgay, a sherpa from Nepal, on 29 May 1953.
