"I climbed Everest so that my children wouldn’t have to” - Tenzing Norgay
Jamling Norgay is the son of Tenzing Norgay who successfully climbed Mount Everest with Sir Edmund Hillary on May 29, 1953.
Ever since his father spoke these words to him, Jamling had been seized by a passion to follow in his father’s historic footsteps - to step onto Mount Everest’s icy skin and learn the lessons it has to teach.
In “Touching My Father’s Soul – An Odyssey to the top of Mount Everest” Jamling Tenzing Norgay brings to life a profound and compelling adventure, interweaving the lives of a family, a mountain and people, and of climbers facing nearly insurmountable obstacles. It is a story of disaster, triumph, professionalism and the resilience of the human spirit.
