In 1953, the ascent of Everest remained the last of Earths great challenges. Standing at over 29,000ft, the worlds highest mountain posed a fearsome challenge and had already claimed thirteen lives in previous expeditions.
Faced with treacherous winds, sub-zero temperatures and battling altitude sickness, Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay finally achieved the impossible and became the first men to stand atop Everest. It was an event that stunned the world and defined an era.
Sir Edmund Hillarys incredible achievement remains one of the greatest adventure stories of all time; the epic journey of a man from modest beginnings who overcame adversity to reach the highest point on Earth.
