Former library video with stickers. Vinyl box and video in good condition.Breathtaking cinematography and vintage footage focus on a small Sherpa village in Nepal where Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay reunite to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their conquest of Mount Everest's summit. The first men to reach they summit, Sir Edmund and Norgay are also clearly friends. The genuine esteem between Sir Edmund and his family and residents of Kungbu, Nepal, is refreshing after the stories of numerous wealthy tourists' attempts to climb Everest, where Sherpas are mentioned in passing like colonial resources to be bought. One of the most remarkable features of this beautiful and educational video is the unusual insider perspective into the inner world of Sherpa culture, into the homes and families and monastic life of these high-altitude dwellers. Sir Edmund is a revered and popular figure in the Sherpa communities where he has devoted decades to constructing schools and empowering villagers. In addition to discussing the historic first conquest of Everest and the changes both the Hillary family and the Sherpa communities in Nepal have experienced in the last 30 years, this video is a rich cultural documentary of the Sherpa way of life. This video, part of the National Geographic video series, is like the triumphant other side of the Everest story for anyone who has enjoyed Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air: A Personal Account of the Mount Everest Disaster.On May 28, 1953, Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay became the first men to conquer Mount Everest. They risked their lives for the honor of standing where no human had ever before: at the summit of the highest mountain peak in the world. Now, more than 30 years later, Hillary and his climbing companion return to Everest to celebrate their historic ascent. Complete with breathtaking footage from the 1953 expedition, RETURN TO EVEREST is a tribute to the brave men who tamed this famous mountain, as well as the Sherpa people of Nepal who helped these pioneers achieve their goal.
