Tribute to a giant 

Thomas Bell writes in the Telegraph "Sir Edmund Hillary has been mourned in Nepal as a 'second father' to the Sherpa people and an honorary son of their mountains and valleys."

One of Edmund Hillary's great achievements was to help the people of Nepal and the Himalayan country has declared how immensely proud it is to be home to the world's tallest mountain, and also how immensely proud it is of the giant foreigner who, along with Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, climbed it for the first time, 55 years ago.

Read why Nepal granted him greater honours than any other outsider, in Thomas Bell's tribute article.
