Exploring Legends with Norbu Tenzing Norgay

Norbu Tenzing Norgay is vice president of the American Himalayan Foundation in San Francisco, CA. He has been with the organization since 1993. Norbu is also the eldest son of Tenzing Norgay who, in 1953 with Sir Edmund Hillary, was the first to summit Mt. Everest, the world's highest peak.

Norgay, 54, attended Manhattanville College and has a Bachelor's degree in economics from the University of New Hampshire. He loves traveling to his native Himalaya twice a year and is always in search of a great meal of dal bhat (and sometimes goat lung). He is a long-time advocate of reducing risk on the world's highest peaks.

Interviewer Jim Clash FR'99 will discuss with Norbu the current state on Mt. Everest from the Sherpa perspective, his late father Tenzing, the work of the American Himalayan Foundation and more. At the end of the interview, as is customary, Jim will open the floor to audience questions.
