One of my closest friends, Billi Bierling (who i have known since my time in Nepal and shared many a bonkers adventure with) is currently on an expedition to summit the mighty Mt Everest, from the Nepali (south) side. I thought that people might be interested in her updates from the highest mountain on earth, which are posted on a daily basis on www.billibierling.com.

Billi is an amazing person, a talented athlete and a wonderful journalist. She gives an insight into life behind the scenes on Chomolungma  – telling stories of the sherpas, everyday life and the trials and tribulations of making the summit attempt.

Enjoy!
