Tenzing Norgay and the Sherpas of EverestBook
On May 29, 1953, Tenzing Norgay became one of the first people to reach the summit of Mount Everest. Tenzing received many honours, but he was never comfortable with his celebrity status. Instead he chose to champion the cause of the Sherpa people, live simply and work to improve their conditions.
