  1. Congrats! Maybe next time you should try Everest! Hope you enjoyed climbing the mountain… or once you finished climbing it. 🙂

    You were really brave to take on that challenge, even though every year approximately a 1,000 people are evacuated and approximately 10 deaths are reported. The actual number of deaths is believed to be 2 or 3 times more.
    Even with all these risks you climbed the mountain. Congratulations!!!
