Back of the blog - Everest @ 60

Back of the blog. Here we will try and share tit-bits and snippets on India Travel which may be useful for a traveller in India. It may be some new information about the place, a new cuisine one can explore, a bit of history, a funny anecdote or a good travel book. Anything connected to Travel in India.

It is Sixty years since Mount Everest was conquered by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay. I have been reading a fantastic book by Mike Conefrey on the first ascent of Everest. The book captures the complete account of the ascent, the grit and determination of the whole team in trying circumstances.


Here is a review of the book in "The Guardian"

Everest 1953 - The Epic story of first ascent - A review

If you love mountains - who doesn't - then take a look at this lovely video on Mt Everest

Celebrating Everest - AlJazeeera video

Also read the brilliant first hand account of covering ascent of Everest in 1953 by Peter Jackson, the Reuters correspondent.

Assignment Everest

And of course, don't forget to read experiences by famed mountaineers, see outstanding pictures on National Geographic. Published to celebrate fifty years of first ascent in 2003, it is still makes one get goose bumps!

Hey thanks for sharing the great post. Love to read your blog on travel in India. Proud to be an Indian because it's the only country which has so many different cultures, traditions and languages. Being one the largest country in the world, there are many online portals offers great holiday packages in India at affordable prices to make Indian vacation hassle free and safe. Thomas Cook, Make My Trip, Yatra and Clear Trip are few of them.
