Nepal has named two Himalayan peaks after Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay.
The two mountains are close to Mount Everest and have been opened to foreigners for climbing.
The move is hoped to revive Nepal’s appeal to mountaineers.
The conquest of Mount Everest by Hillary and his Nepali guide Tenzing in 1953 meant that Nepal was seen as a destination for mountain climbers. But recent high profile deaths on the mountain have started to put some climbers off.
It is hoped that by opening these mountains more climbers wuill come to the region.
Nepal is home to eight of the 14 peaks in the world which are over 8,000 metres (26,247 ft) high.
