Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Embrace this trip for what it is, awe inspiring and possibly the hardest thing you'll ever do apart from an 8,000m peak. Make sure that you have thoroughly tested yourself at altitude before heading out on this one. In preparation, train hard to the point that you feel sick!! you almost certainly are going to feel nauseous at times on the mountain. Check out all your medications and their side effects, and how they react at altitude. You don't want your meds to become the reason you need to come down. But most of all, keep everything in perspective and enjoy, it's TOTALLY BREATHTAKING
