Everest is still as mysterious, beguiling and magnificent as ever. Standing incredibly tall silhouetted against the shared sky of Nepal and Tibet, this mountain has many names: Chomolungma, Sagarmatha, Qomolungma or Mt. Everest. Whichever name one chooses, its mystery still lives on. Sir E. Hillary & Tenzing Norgay first climbed it in 1953.
Perhaps the most colorful story about the early attempts on Everest is the one involving Captain J. Noel and his native companions. He disguised himself as a Mohammaden and made a journey from Darjeeling through Northwest Sikkim and round the north of Kanchenjunga in an attempt to reach Everest. Unfortunately, not even the disguise could see him through. His mission was out short just sixty-five kms from Everest when a posse of Tibetan soldiers forced them to turn back.
Although there are a dozen or so routes on Mt. Everest we follow the classical route, traditionally the most reliable way to the summit.
