I have arrived at Mount Everest, my dark brown boots crunches through crystal white snow. The chilly winter breeze lashes at me like a whip – ‘WUH-PUSSSH’, I fell over the sharp, rocky mountain terrain. The sound of the wind whisking away with a ‘WUSHHH’, I glare at the sky in amazement and astonishment as I have never witnessed such elegant scenery ever before, Crisp, white, shining covering that transformed the landscape making it a magical land full of wonder and undiscovered mysteries. The frozen river numb with cold seeking warmth, the blue navy sky gleams over the wintery snowy land; The sudden sensation of a sharp briskness brushes across my pale face, the countless layers of clothing strokes my frozen chest, though beautiful the snow was cold and sharp as it bit at my fingers and the wind kissed my cheeks.

Morning finally came and I got out of my tent to find a commotion with many climbers crying as one of our Sherpa’s died. The other Sherpa’s decided to bury him in the snow and we all gave a hand in digging tirelessly to help create a hole to bury his small, pale and cold body. The death reminded us all how dangerous this journey is.
I wonder through a disorientated path, an endless journey, leading to nowhere but the heavens. The sun scarcely noticeable as it distinguishes the small amount of warmth it can administer, a shiver of anxiety runs down my spine. I find myself in a white haven filled with
