Most memorable outdoor experience?
I love being away from the crowds in beautiful places. Trekking in the remote Tian Shan mountians last year was such a treat. The views were mind blowing and we only saw a handful of people all week, most of them locals out tending their horses.
I was privileged to go on an expedition completely away from it all back in 2013 with just two friends, to an unexplored valley in the heart of the Indian Himalaya. Two years in planning led us to successfully summit a mountain we named Cha Ri. Being on a peak where you know no-one has ever stepped before, and looking at the myriad of surrounding peaks all waiting to be explored was really very special.
