In Neal's own word's he summarises his journey:

"High up above Kathmandu in the Himalayas stands the highest mountain in the world, Everest. It has always been a fascination to me throughout my life having read many books and watched countless TV programs about it. I like you, probably, are a keen walker and have travelled through much of our glorious country side and national parks. At the age of forty six I found myself in a position to fulfil my dream and walk to the foot of Everest. This is true account of my journey with all the ups and downs and the sheer wonderment on how so much beauty is crammed into one area. It is without a doubt the best thing I have ever done"
