The Classic Gokya-Ri Trek

When Mallory was questioned why he wanted to climb Everest he replied: "Because its there"; but it took more than 3 decades and in this period more than 20 expeditions tried but failed to summit the mighty and magnificent Mt. Everest. Finally on May 28th 1953 - Mt. Everest was first conquered by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay and till 2003 1,300 climbers has reached the "Top of the World".
