Tell us about your 2022 trip to Nepal? How did it feel to be back in the Himalayas?
The feeling of being able to travel and again explore and share the Himalayas with a fellow Australian in Tina Beard was amazing, after 2.5 years of training, hoping, doing virtual climbs and writing article for local papers, fundraising, it was so good to actually step foot onto the Singapore Airlines flight and get to Nepal.
We were met by my friend Mr Ram Thapa Maga from Nepal Spirit our in country coordinator. And it was just like old times,
We had a days rest to get over jet lag, and the following day we were on a small plane from Kathmandu to Lukla. The flight is the smoothest flight ever. and the scenery is stunning. The next 8 days we steadily climbed to Mt Everest Base Camp at 5300m, and were able to fulfil 2.5 years of preparation. Very satisfying.
