The planning and preparation for my next adventure has begun!!
On April 16th 2017, I’ll be heading out from Heathrow airport to Kathmandu, Nepal, where I’ll begin a journey to trek to the South Base Camp at Mt Everest.
The overall trip is 20 days including the flights, 14 days of this will be trekking and acclimatising to the altitude where I will ascend to over 18,500 ft (3.5 miles) when we visit Kala Pattar, the most prominent view of Mt Everest. After this I’ll actually ‘descend’ 1000ft to the EBC.
There are 4-5hrs of trekking everyday, and I’m by no means fit enough to manage that at the moment, so, for the next 14 months, 2 weeks and 5 days I’ll be concentrating on, and writing about my preparation, fitness, equipment and general excitement!!
