Tenzing Torkey was born in the beautiful valley of Son Kumbu in Nepal. He began his life as a porter and his early years were more or less uneventful. In his boyhood Tenzing heard the stories of the inaccessible peaks of the Himalayas being attempted to be conquered by the Europeans. He felt within him the urge of sealing the inaccessible, doing the impossible and conquered.
He got a chance when in 1935 a European party came to climb the snowy Himalayan peaks. Tenzing climbed a number of peaks with them. In 1952 he again joined a Swiss party of mountaineers. That time he narrowly missed reaching the Mount Everest. And so it still defied the challenge of man. In 1953 with the greatest difficulty Tenzing and Hillary managed to climb up the last stretch of ice-clad slopes. After cutting the last few steps with his ice-axes, Tenzing succeeded in conquering the highest peak in the world.

The world was amazed to hear of the heroic achievement of this great man. The world proud of him and Hillary.
