Nepal’s highway map looks like a number of lonely rivulets cutting through a barren panorama — no spider web of intersecting highway lines snake this country.

Edmund Hillary from New Zealand and Tenzing Norgay, a sherpa from Nepal, had been part of a British expedition that has definitely gone down in historical past. Many have heard the names Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, the mountaineers from New Zealand and Nepal who in 1953 had been the first men to summit Mt. Everest. Climbing lovers may have heard about Japan’s Junko Tabei, who was the first lady to achieve the highest point on Earth in 1975.
