I think respect should be given to the Nepalese government for showing such a gesture

Indeed. An excellent gesture. Sir Edmund paid great recongition to the efforts made by Tenzing and the other Sherpas in the ascent of Everest and helped them in so many ways in the years afterwards. A fitting tribute to two men who made one of those truly landmark achievements.

A very fitting tribute indeed and a way for (ignorants like me) to get acquainted with Lukla's location and importance to trekkers.

Yes indeed!!! Excelent tribute to both men, we cannot forget that Hillary gave maybe the best tribute to the nationals in Nepal always ready to help and talk on behalf of them..I wish many countries could do the same to these kind of people, true gentlemen!
