Probably the most interesting and challenging mountain ascents in the World, the Mount Everest Ascent remain a legend. However, the Everest legend is becoming a sweeter tooth based on some slimy revelations about the pioneer of making it to its summit, Sir Edmund Hillary. The climber was the first man to climb the Mount Everest and beat the tough ascent. This was confirmed and wrote on the records and splashed in the media. However, emerging news that the first man to make it 8,848-metre peak was Sir Hillary’s beekeeper Sherpa Tenzing Norgay

Tenzing exposed this story in his book which was published after his death in 1986. Norgay wrote that ‘Hillary stepped on top first. And I stepped up after him. So there it is - the answer to the “great mystery”.’ This predates Hillary’s supposed revelation by 31 years. This has cleared the mist over the flimsy news of the controversy over who made it to the peak first.

According to sources, the Everest climbing exercise and ascent is the most inspiring and glorious. The mountain and its summit is deemed a magnificent place, but has a reputation of being extremely harsh.

Lately, the Everest has become a key attraction with hundreds of climbers visiting the standing challenge. Many climbers refer it as cold climb. The cold climb is backed up by a biting strong wind and anyone without the psyche and will, cannot make it. The ascent is said to cause instant frosting and anything that falls on the ground turns into ice.

The ascent is a challenging and tiring exercise and how Edmund made it remains an interesting apocalypse. The climb is very interesting though, at 7900 altitude, one can rest but its not such fun to sleep at such heights, it’s the excitement of being that hight that’s interesting.
