International Mt Everest day celebrates as an anniversary of first Mount Everest summit
Mount Everest is a subject of great wonder and awe to the mountain lovers. As it is a great challenge for anyone to reach the summit of this highest mountain peak in the world. Earlier, the conquer of this peak was considered to be totally impossible, due to the innumerable dangers faced in this way that stopped the mountaineers to reach the summit alive.
However, two brave and outstanding mountain climbers, Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary of joined hands for this cause, as a part of a British expedition. They started their expedition and finally reached the summit of Mount Everest on May 29, 1953, at 11.30 am in the morning.
Hence, this special day is now celebrated as International Mount Everest Day, in the memory of this memorable achievement.
Since then, plenty of mountaineers had successfully climbed to the peak of Mount Everest, inspired by the success of these two highly revered mountaineers.
