Earlier this year I embarked on one of my most challenging adventures yet – I decided to trek to Everest Base Camp in aid of Friends of Amasango UK. This trek involved 13 days of continuous walking up to an altitude of 5,365m (5,643m if you include Kala Patthar!) whilst battling the freezing cold temperatures and bitterly winds. I have been asked many questions about this trip so I thought I’d attempt to summarise the most frequently asked ones below.
