      Not yet! I did a three week trek in the Himalaya region in Northern India in a region called Himachal Pradesh. It is a beautiful part of the world has some of the most incredible scenery and people.We didn’t go as high as Everest or K2, and I got really bad altitude sickness for a few days! I recovered though whilst still walking 15 miles a day up and down mountains and creating some of my favourite memories like sleeping in a valley under the most beautiful sky, stars and the Milky Way. I definitely want to go back when I can and if I could climb one of those that would be an amazing achievement. Maybe we could do a summit challenge and get training for it as part of the Mission X programme! Is trekking and mountaineering something you’re interested in? What challenges would you like to face and where would you like to explore?
