Annapurna Blushes : Mid-December minus 9 Celsius dawn from Poon Hill at 3800 metres, after an hour’s climb in the dark from Ghorapani at 2900 metres. It was a two days trek to Ghorapani and at one streatch we had to climb over 3500 steps at one go – the trek was graded "easy" but when you are pushing 75 it can be very tough !
