Legendary Everest sherpa commemorated

Al Jazeera speaks to the son of Tenzing Norgay, the first sherpa to reach Mount Everest's peak.

    In just a few days, it will be sixty years since Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay became the first men to reach the highest point on earth - the summit of Mount Everest.

    Hundreds have tried to follow in their footsteps but failed.
