Kua hoki mai a Peter, te tama a Tā Edmund Hillary, ki te kāinga ki Aotearoa, nānā te rū nui i te whenua o Nepal i wheako, me āna i mahue ai ki ngā iwi o reira. 

I te hīkoi a Peter Hillary me ōna hoa tekau mā rua i te koraha o Nepal i te pānga o te rū, whitu ira waru te pākaha.

Tōna tikanga he haerenga nui tēnei mā ētahi tauira tekau mā rua o mua o Kings College ki ngā maunga Himalaya. Engari tekau mā tahi anake i hoki ora mai.

I tau te rōpū ki tetahi toa tī i Gorakshep i te wā i rū te whenua. He rua haora tōna tawhiti mai i tā rātou wāhi noho.   

Whai muri i te rū ki Nepal ka heke whakararo te rōpū. Engari ka mate tētahi o ngā hoa o Hillary a Greg Kay i te mate manawa.
