Abhishek Noronha of grade 9A trekked to the Mt. Everest Base Camp (EBC) during April 2 to April 16. The 14 day trek with freezing cold weather and negligible amount of oxygen proved highly challenging as well as a marvelous trek. Abhishek was fortunate to meet the great Sir Edmund Hillary’s son, Peter Hillary who encouraged him to peak the 8848m Mt. Everest. He reached a maximum height of 5540m (EBC). The average temperature in this area was -16 degree celsius and the probability of finishing this trek at 14 years is a mere 36.7 percent (Information provided by locals in Nepal).
