Islamic Relief's Everest Base Camp Challenge and ascent to Kala Patar (5,545m) was an amazing experience, full of fun and joy. It’s something that I will never forget - the hospitality of the Sherpa people, the spectacular scenery, and the friendliness of the Roland from the Mountain Company and the rest of the volunteers in my group - definitely one of those magical moments in life!!! It was definitely once in a life experience!!! It was a fantastic trip!!! Great achievement!!!
