Photo 1957: China Mountaineering Team scaling a steep northern slope on Mount Everest. https://www.viewofchina.com/the-climbers/ #china #history

A Chinese mountaineer jumping over a gap on Mount Everest - a photo taken in 1975. Since the absence of the video evidence, for decades, the Chinese team’s climbing success in 1960 was not recognised by international organisations. So in 1975 when China was still in the Cultural Revolution but in fact, an open reform aiming to achieve Four Modernisations had already orderly begun since 1974, a new China Mountaineering Team was formed which included female climbers. https://www.viewofchina.com/the-climbers/ #china #history

In 1953, two climbers, one from Nepal and another from New Zealand became the first men scaled Mount Everest from the southern side. Yet, the attempts to scale the peak from the steep Chinese side failed. Until 1960. In February 1960, a Chinese Mountaineering Team was formed. 50 men were received strenuous training but only half passed the final test. Eventually, just four reached the Second Platform and three stepped on the summit. https://www.viewofchina.com/the-climbers/ #china #history
