    This is the story of how, on May 29, 1953, two men, both endowed with outstanding stamina and skill reached for the first time the top of the world: the summit of Mount Everest.

    NZAC Himalayan Expedition Barun Valley 1954

    NZAC Himalayan Expedition Barun Valley 1954

    George Lowe (1954)

    Filmed by George Lowe and taken on the New Zealand Alpine Club’s 1954 Expedition to the Barun Valley in Nepal. Ed Hillary was the leader of the expedition. It was a large expedition involving a number of New Zealand’s best mountaineers at the time. Roland Ellis did a great deal of organising for this expedition and I think in the end, as a keen amateur film buff, also financed the movie. He edited it and organised Ed to be the commentator.
