FORBES MT. EVEREST JOURNAL
lOOKING AT MT. EVEREST WITH DEPTH AND COMPLEXITY - READY?
LANGUAGE OF THE DISCIPLINE
Trekking on Mt. Everest can be treacherous...the summit is one of the hardest summits to achieve. At Base Camp you must reach acclimation before trekking any higher. The Sherpa guides are experienced and will be with you all the way. They are knowledgeable about avalanches and will warn all climbers. In order to survive, you must drink 4-5 liters of water or you will dehydrate or perish. Oxygen tanks are a must. Your cornea can suffer tragic snow blindness unless you wear the appropriate heavy-duty goggles or sun glasses. Hypothermia...BEWARE...can kill you in 30 minutes or less if your falling body temperature is not treated.
