Tenzing in Mongolia


Tenzing Norgay lives-in Mongolia, in the form of a peak recently named after the first man to step on Everest. A joint Mongolian-Nepali climbing expedition recently named a 4,030m peak in Mongolia's Altai Mountains after Tenzing to mark forty years of friendship between the mountain kingdom and the desert republic. Last month, eleven-time Everest summiteer Appa Sherpa and Iman Gurung, Everest summiteer and instructor at the Nepal Mountaineering Association, conquered the peak with four Mongolian climbers. Together, they planted the flags of both countries, placed a photo of Tenzing, and named the mountain after the late climber.
