Edmand Hilllary will be laid to rest on top of the world, according to Yahoo!news. The famous mountaineer (who died in 2008, 55 years after being the first to summit the mountain) will be carried to top of Everest by Apa Sherpa. Sherpa will be attempting his record breaking 20th summit this year, in an effort to clean up debris left  from previous expeditions. Sherpa recently created the Apa Sherpa Foundation, which aims to provide education and economic resources to individuals in Nepal.
