81-year-old Kancha Sherpa, the lone surviving member of the first expedition to reach the top of Mount Everest, holds a Nepalese flag and participates with mountaineers and trekking guides in a rally to mark the 61st anniversary of the conquest of Mount Everest in Katmandu, Nepal, Thursday, May 29, 2014.

More than 4,200 climbers have scaled the 8,850-foot (29,035-foot) summit since then. (AP Photo/Niranjan Shrestha) less
