It is every mountaineer's dream to see Mount Everest and visit Everest Base
Camp. NikonNet.com is happy to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the first
American ascent of Mount Everest, with a new special trek organized
to commemorate this exciting event.
Starting on April 30th, the duo of the first American on Everest—Jim
Whittaker, and the Sherpa who climbed with him, Nawang Gombu—once again
ascended the mountain and relived their 40-year-old Everest story. Nikon
Pro Markets Tech Rep and Photographer Mark S. Kettenhofen was along with
them, and reported back live with images all the way from Kathmandu to the
top of the world's largest mountain.
