The Times Everest Colour Supplement 1953

On 29 May 1953, Sir Edmund Hilary and Tenzing Norgay became the first men to summit Mount Everest. Sixty one years later, more than 3,500 people have been inspired to climb this mountain and some pay well over £100,000 for a ‘guided climb.’ 

A friend of mine, Jelle Veyt, is about to do a solo/unsupported climb of Mount Everest. If climbing this mountain unsupported isn’t enough, he also cycled from his home town in Belgium to Everest Base Camp in Nepal!

Read a little more about his trip here.

This was a great read
