Memorial Chorten Dedicated to Sherpa Tenzing Norgay, Everest Trail by FreddieZB, via Flickr. A "chorten" is a monument to a distinguished Buddhist. Norgay was a Tibetan mountaineer who in 1953 became, with Edmund Hillary, the first person to set foot on the summit of Mount Everest. He spent 15 minutes there “taking photographs and eating mint cake,” and, as a devout Buddhist, he left an offering of food. After his feat he was regarded as a legendary hero by many Nepalese and Indians.
