Helen Bell had wanted to trek among the high mountains for a long time.
Her chance came in 2013 when she heard of a small group going to the north side of K2.
The trip would take five and a half weeks and the group would be trekking through one of the most remote areas in western China where there was no chance of any helicopter rescue.
Helen had never camped before. She hardly needed to think about it – she joined the group and got into training straight away.
This is her personal account of the journey.
Join Helen for a slide show and talk at Newlands Activity Centre.
