Everest: 1996-2006

National Geographic Adventure is running a special entitled Everest: 1996-2006 which has some excellent and interesting thoughts on the mountain. You’ll find an account by Ed Viesturs of what it was like back in 1996, when the deadliest storm in Everest history brought tragedy to the mountain.

You’ll also find a very different look at the 2006 season, which was marked by calm weather, but was not without it’s own share of tragedy. Very interesting to read.
