Tuesday marks 65 years since New Zealander Sir Edmund Hillary and Nepali Sherpa Tenzing Norgay reached the summit of Mt Everest – the highest peak in the world – on May 29, 1953.

To mark the anniversary, a group of New Zealanders are taking on the Summit Anniversary Trek through the Himalayas, and volunteering at schools set up by Sir Edmund following his famous ascent.

The group of 26 Kiwis are on a 19-day gruelling trek up to Everest’s base camp to mark the anniversary.  Read more at Newshub.
