Super Liz does it again

Super Liz does it again

Whilst most of us at Mountain Kingdoms find the thought of trekking round the Mont Blanc massif enough of a challenge, our superhuman Operations Manager, Liz, decided to run round the mountain instead – in a single day!

An ultramarathon runner, Liz is no stranger to epic endurance races and last week she took part in one of the hardest – the 101 km, CCC race (Courmayeur - Champex- Chamonix) part of the Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc. Not only is that 63 non-stop miles over mountainous terrain at altitude, but it includes 10 summits, a colossal 6,100m of ascent (and about the same of descent), and it requires competitors to run through the night in freezing temperatures. Despite this being the “hardest physical and mental challenge” she’s ever faced, Liz was the second fastest woman in her age group to finish the race, in amazing time of less than 20 hours.She really is our very own Wonder Woman!

Mountain Kingdoms clients return to Bhutan

Bhutan is back open after two long years, and Ian and Lizzy were amongst our first clients to return. They were doing the Druk Path Trek and here’s what they had to say about their time in Bhutan.

"Amazing scenery and sights with the most hospitable people you’re ever likely to meet. Our guide was superb and all the camp crew were great. The Druk Path trek may be a short trek but the altitude makes it more challenging as most of it is over 3500m, we were well looked after and the food was amazing in camp."
