Then you will take rest for three to four day at the base camp and before you start climbing up to the mountain for the summit, a kit is better to go downwards to one of the villages for a couple of days.

Also when I got sick, I gave myself permission to be sick and get well.
How did you do in 2002? It is a progressive and terminal disease for which there is currently no cure.
