May 29th in Nepal was ‘EVEREST DAY’! On this day the trekking and climbing communities came together (many at Everest Base Camp) to celebrate the first successful ascent of Mount Everest by Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary on May 29, 1953. Yes, it is a big deal in our little world and the Tenzing-Hillary Everest Marathon was created to commemorate this historic accomplishment.
2023 marks the 70th anniversary of Everest’s first ascent. We will be there and we want you to join us at 17,500 feet for all the fun! Granted, you’ll have to hike for 8 days first!
