Named for the Surveyor-General of India, Sir George Everest, Mount Everest is the tallest mountain in the world, and is part of the Himalayan range within South Asia. This fine collection of images dedicated to this storied mountain was launched on May 29, 2003 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the ascent to the top of the peak, accomplished by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay. This online exhibit is part of a larger exhibit that is currently on display at the International Mountaineering Museum in Nepal. The images themselves are divided into nine thematic areas, such as The History of Everest, Tibetan People, Sherpas, and Tenzing and Hillary. Visitors browsing around the site will be treated to a multitude of photographs of the various expeditions to Mount Everest over the past hundred years and biographies of different Everest expedition members from 1921 to 1953.
