If you’re afraid of heights, forget it! You’re at the foot of one of the world’s highest mountains. Awaiting you are snowy slopes and crevasses, icy glaciers and jagged rockface. Get read to experience the intensity and elation of one of the most grueling sports ever.
Start by choosing from six treacherous trails. Or practice your skills on the training course first. Then pack your rucksack – carefully. The items you choose are critical to survival. Select departure time and season, and the trek begins.
You’ll be tested every step by changes in terrain, weather and your health. You could fall thousands of rocky feet. Or freeze to death in a blizzard. Or you just might be one of the lucky few to plant your flag at the peak.
