Autographed by Jamling Tenzing Norgay {Mt Everest (1996)}

FROM MY COLLECTION


Jamling Tenzing Norgay


Son of Tenzing Sherpa, the first man to climb Mt. Everest, Jamling Tenzing Norgay also followed his father's foot step when he climbed the world's highest peak in 1996.
The autograph was signed on the cover of 1996 Everest IMAX Filming Expedition.
From Wikipedia:
Everest is a 70mm American documentary film Mount Everest, the highest mountain peak on Earth located in Himalayan region of Nepal. It was released to IMAX theaters in 1998 about the struggles involved in climbing 
The 40-minute film is narrated by Liam Neeson and shot entirely in IMAX format. It includes a vivid description of the training required in order to climb, and the challenges encountered such as avalanches and lack of oxygen. This film had been in production at Everest during the 1996 Everest Disaster, in which a group of mountain climbers were trapped by a blizzard near the summit. This film contains footage of these people, as IMAX crew members interrupt filming to aid the stricken climbers.
Everest grossed $87 million during its US theatrical run, which is the second highest grossing amount ever for an IMAX documentary.  It is the highest grossing film never to hit the weekend box office top 5.

When i started my blog on Sikkim way back in 2007, i had it clear on my mind that this blog shall help people look out for knowledge on Sikkim. I always wanted a knowledge house about Sikkim, its past, present and future. I do not know over the years how much did i succeed but my determination to let other understand my Sikkim is always giving me a push. with regards Shital Pradhan (himalayanreview@gmail.com)
