My trip to Mount Everest, Nepal in 2010 – part 10
I made it! After ten days on the go, I made it to Everest Base Camp.
We were at the foot of the Khumbu Icefall.
I was very tired but my Sherpa porters encourage me all the way. Without my porters, I wouldn’t had made it so I thank all of them one by one.
My Sherpas then put on traditional Nepali dancing costumes and gave me and the rest of the expedition team a traditional Nepali dance.
Everest Base Camp soon became a party piece with dancing, booze and celebrations.
One of my Sherpas then took a photograph of me posing at Everest Base Camp.
I did it, the first cuddly toy to make it to Everest!
A telegram was soon sent to London to confirm our wee monkey amazing achievement and within hours we received aknowledgement from the Guinness World Records that our wee monkey had become the FIRST cuddly toy to set foot on Everest! WOW!
After the party, our wee monkey flew back to the UK and reported back to the barracks for duty on the Monday morning.
