Both the men have dreamt about it for years and managed to climb the world's highest mountain in seven weeks.

It's official that New Zealander Edmund Hillary and Nepalese Tenzing Norgay created history at 11:30 a.m. on May 29, 1953. They were the first people to ever reach the summit of Mount Everest.

Off the record, according to Tenzing Norgay it was Sir Edmund Hillary who reached the summit first.

Before this successful summit, in 1924 George Mallory and Andrew Irvine made a final summit attempt on June 8 but sadly, they never returned.
