What a fantastic week of adventure, self-discovery and both mental and physical exertion, I couldn't have hoped to have been grouped with a more diverse set of people.
A very good portion of us made it to the summit, which is outstanding as we made the summit in 4 and a half days as opposed to the recommended 6 days minimum due to altitude acclimatization. The 1 and a half days back down to get out of the national park to be collection for our little bit of luxury at the hotel.
I'm pleased to say that funds raised in this expedition are sufficient to pay for 2 Parkinson's nurses for a whole year, thank you once again if you are one of the very generous sponsors.
