Two humans were found on Mount Everest, the highest place on Earth, the world got the news after 4 days

Date 29 May 1953 and 11:30 am - Edmund Hillary of New Zealand and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay of Nepal arrived at Mount Everest at this very moment. The whole world remembers this moment as a historical achievement. 

Today it has been 68 years for this feat. This campaign was from Britain. The whole world received this news 4 days later on June 2. This day was also the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II of Britain.

Mount Everest, 29 thousand 32 feet high, is the highest peak in the Himalayas. Due to extremely cold weather, uphill climb, and icy storms, no human was able to reach this peak even after much effort.

In 1921, Britain sent a team of climbers to Mount Everest as part of an expedition. The crew was on its mission, but a terrible ice storm blocked the crew's path. The entire crew left the mission unfinished and returned. 

The effort was not a success, but George Le Melee, who was in the group, saw a slightly easier way to reach the peak. The following year, Mary set out to conquer Mount Everest again. This time reached an altitude of 27 thousand feet, but then the weather did not support it.

In this way, efforts continued to conquer Everest. In 1952, Tenzing Norgay did a feat by reaching a height of 28 thousand 210 feet, but the peak of Mount Everest was still far away.

The following year, Britain prepared to send a team led by Colonel John Hunt to Mount Everest. Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary were also part of this team. The team was sent to Mt Everest with complete preparation.

The team began climbing in April 1953. The team had reached a height of 26 thousand feet. The road ahead was even more difficult. On 26 May, Charles Evans and Tom Bordillon, the two men of the crew, began their last ascent. Both had to return due to an oxygen mask malfunction at a distance of about 300 feet from the peak.

On 28 May, Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay began climbing. After a day's climb, the night was spent between a fierce icy storm and winter at an altitude of 27 thousand 900 feet. The morning started climbing again and by 9 o'clock both had reached the northern summit. 

Between these two and Mount Everest now stood an icy rock 40 feet high. Hillary reached up through a crack in the middle of the rock with the help of a rope. They threw a rope from there. Norgay came up holding the rope. Both were at the peak of the world at half-past 11.
