In Aid of The Cystic Fibrosis Trust

The Cystic Fibrosis Trust

Cystic Fibrosis TrustCystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic condition affecting more than 10,400 people in the UK. You are born with CF and cannot catch it later in life, but one in 25 of us carries the faulty gene that causes it, usually without knowing. Living with cystic fibrosis (CF) can be challenging, but it doesn't have to stop you from going to school, having a family or getting a job. Find out how the Cystic Fibrosis Trust can offer you the support you need to achieve all that and more.

About Charles Dewhurst

Having been fascinated by everything Nepal and Everest since attending a Sir Chris Bonington and also a Doug Scott lecture many years ago, and more recently meeting the amazing Mollie Hughes, who at the age of 26 became the youngest woman ever to conquer Everest from both Nepal and Tibet, I had the pleasure of briefly visiting Kathmandu in 1982 but never thought that in 2017 and 2018 and now 2019 I would be following in the footsteps of so many famous mountaineers.

The majority of the worlds population can only ever dream about what it must feel like to stand on top of the worlds highest mountain, and at the same time not realise just how much preparation, organisation and physical and mental energy it takes to get there, and, in an environment with depleted levels of oxygen and sub zero temperatures. My trek to base camp is not about personal goals, it is about raising funds for a fantastic charity and at the same time it is also about respecting the men and women who have not only been there before but have achieved the ultimate goal in reaching the summit. It is also about paying my respects to the people who have made the ultimate sacrifice while trying to achieve their goal. Looking back over the years I can only admire how Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing managed to reach the summit when you compare the equipment and clothing they had then, to what is now readily available.

Trekking | Climbing to Everest

Most of the climbers and trekkers in the world long to work their way to Everest Base Camp at least once in lifetime. The Everest Base Camp Trek has been exceptionally popular for climbers and trekkers since the very first successful expeditions to the Nepalese side of Everest in 1953 (May 29th) by Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary. The area is famous for its stunning mountain peaks and the welcoming and friendliness of local people. The region is one of the most popular trekking destinations in Nepal. While many of the routes through the mountains are challenging, there are ample places to rest and let your body get used to the elevation.
