This site was meant to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the initial climb of Mount Everest on May 29, 1953. However, it remains one of the best sites on the Web about Everest in that it captures the danger and adventure of an ascent. Click on everything it offers, but in particular, do not miss the "360° View from Summit" and the "Full Everest Anniversary Coverage" where you will find a "Sights & Sounds" feature box along the right hand side. Click there for the sights and sounds of the Sherpas and Sir Edmund Hillary.
