Training for Everest in Sydney

The harbour views in Sydney are always worth getting outside for and having a bit of exercise.   Living beside the harbour though is not too helpful for the high altitudes we are about to face we are looking at a peak altitude of just over 5500 metres  (18000 ft).

Anyway we enjoyed going on the many great hikes around Sydney and covered a lot of ground we wouldn’t have seen otherwise.  And maybe changed some habits so we don’t just jump in the car to get something.  Much healthier both physically and mentally to walk those few kilomteres.

“Sense of adventure and humor is the must to enjoy this trip”

” No specific experience is required to complete this trip but good health and an ability to walk several hours a day with breaks in between”
