In Everest Base Camp, Steve charts his training journey before undertaking his mammoth mission. Through reading about all of the training he undertook, we also get to discover just how much beauty there is in the UK. Beauty that may go unrealised or unappreciated at times.
Read on to see some of the highlights Steve points out to us in Everest Base Camp:
- The Brecon Beacons Four Peaks
With the slogan, ‘Always changing, forever beautiful,’ you can already get a sense of what you’re in for when you visit the Brecon Beacons in Wales. Also known as the Horseshoe walk, the route is made up of four peaks: Corn Du, Pen y Fan, Cribyn and Fan y Big. Amazing mountain views are guaranteed.
2. Tissington Trail
Passing through the Derbyshire Dales countryside, the Tissington Trail is home to all kinds of idyllic views throughout its 13-mile trail. Even nicer is the fact that the trail is traffic free, making it the perfect place to find some rare peace. Talk about being at one with nature!
3. Thorpe Cloud
Not only does Thorpe Cloud have the highest peak in the local area, but it’s also known for its unique conical formation. The beauty doesn't stop there either, as you’re also surrounded by the wonder of views such as Bunster Hill.
4. Ben Lomond
Ben Lomond is Scotland’s most southerly Munro. A pretty impressive feat when you consider that a mountain must reach over 3000ft to achieve Munro status. You can also enjoy stunning views of other Scottish scenery from the summit, such as Loch Lomond.
5. Scafell Pike
In the dazzling arena that is the Lake District, lies the highest mountain in England. Scafell Pike has a little bit of something for everyone, whether hiking or picnicking. The records keep on coming, as the foot of the pike is also home to the deepest lake in England Wastwater.
