Everest on Sky

TV Programme

My son had also recorded Everest... a series about an American team attempting the summit. This programme freaked my wife out somewhat as there were a number of instances of altitude mountain sickness.

Maria is already worried enough about me trekking to Everest Base Camp, without seeing the effects of AMS in others. I tried to reassure her by pointing out these climbers were much higher on the 'hill'. However, even at EBC one can suffer from AMS if you haven't acclimatised properly.

Our trek has plenty of time built in for this and we are under close medical supervision because of the research nature of the expedition... so no worries... I hope!
