Hello clever climbers
I realise this question has probably been asked before and there are some blogs out there but some first hand advise is sought please.
We will be 2 mums travelling with 5 boys u12yrs. My friend is very fit and keen to do the climb (i on the other hand am scared of heights so will give it a miss and look after the kids, good deed & all lol).
My friend (let's call her J-Lee) would like to know if others who have made the climb think it a good idea to climb with a 10 (nearly 11 yr old, the only one interested in making the climb)?? She is mainly concerned about altitude sickness (we live at sea level on a peninsular and they say this makes you more prone to altitude sickness??) Are there are things J-Lee would need to consider taking a child on the climb? WOuld it be better to go through a tour company for extra care, or straight to sutera to book direct? makes no difference??
Any tips would be much appreciated
J-Lee says many many thanks to you
Thanks K :-)
