Our accounts extraordinaire and hiking heroine, Tracy Halliday, together with hubby Tony crossed off hiking Nepal from their bucket list a few years ago when they conquered Annapurna base camp.
They were lucky enough to be there before the earthquake in 2015, however their guide Kumar was not. Kumar and his children lost their home in Kathmandu. Tracy and Tony had kept in contact with him and heard first hand of the devastation and despair.
They sponsored the family while they got themselves back on their feet and a few years later, through this contact, Tony decided Everest base camp must be done… with Kumar as his guide and friend.
