Nepal Expedition training weekend
Team Nepal have just completed the training weekend in preparation for the upcoming expedition to Nepal this summer. The team did incredibly well walking 13 miles on the first day from Richmond to Reeth and also in budgeting to buy the food for the weekend. Spirits were certainly lifted on the Saturday evening when James the expedition leader treated the group to a Nepalese curry cooked by a local family linked to the Gurkha’s which was delicious and if the food in Nepal is as good we will be in for a treat. The team also completed a number of team building activities and went through emergency first aid and evacuation techniques. This is certainly going to the most physically demanding expedition that any team from Harton 6th form has undertaken as the team are trekking the Annapurna Sanctuary which will take 9 days and take them to an altitude of 4150m. The team acquitted themselves incredibly well and everyone is now very much looking forward to an amazing adventure.
