Annapurna Circuit trek (Nepal), Kilimanjaro (Africa), back to the very popular Everest Base camp (Nepal) made my admiration and LOVE for Himalayas and mountains just grow.

From Analysis To Adventure : Summit Mt. Friendship Peak

I had no idea of the terrain and no exposure to any previous mountaineering training but my determination and attitude of ‘I can do it’ made me confident. If it wouldn’t have Boots and Crampons and Romil/Bharath, I couldn’t have made it. Another family I would like to mention here is from my professional life i.e. my organization Boston Scientific and my family.

The trek is actually an acclimatation route for all those who have dreams of scaling the mighty Sagarmatha and being branded as an Éverester’ for life. However just to reach the base of the formidable Mt Everest can be construed as an achievement in itself. A 14-day round trek, with an average of 10 hours on foot daily, oxygen deprivation at every meter gained, symptoms of acute mountain sickness and the cherry on the cake- no bath at the end of the day isn’t exactly one’s idea of a recreational vacation.
