Pole, Pole! Slowly, slowly! No need to rush, take your time, enjoy the views. Drink loads and eat pleanty, you need the energy - the food made was amazing throughout the trip so enjoy it!
Take some snacks with you, you will especially need something for summit day, so try some sugary type things, squares of chocolate or nuts/dred fruit.
Take babywipes and a flannel for 'washy, washy' and a small bar of soap. Might sound obvious but I didn't realise we would have access to a small bowl of water most days which was great.
Take layers, also if you have some old clothers that you may not wish to keep after the trip, please take them with you and leave them for the porters once the trip is complete.
This was an amazing trip, be prepared to work hard, it might look easy-ish on paper but it's not all easy peasy! It was the trip of a lifetime, the group bonded so, so well and EVERY single porter went out of his or her way to help. The trip is organised brilliantly so you don't have to worry about anything.
Stick it out, the views are simply stunning and pictures don't do them justice.
POLE, POLE and when you are ready...TWENDE!!!!!!
