Tomorrow morning (01 March 2018) at 4am local Nepalese time (which is 3hours 45min ahead of us in SA) Ryan Sandes and Ryno Griesel will be setting out on the adventure of a lifetime by trying to set a new FKT for the Great Himalaya Trail. The current record is just over 28 days, so the boys will be giving it all they have over the 1400km distance.

To follow Ryan and Ryno live you can track them on www.redbull.com/ght2018, which will also be updated regularly with pics and videos of their adventure. There is content already up on the site of their preparations in Nepal, as well as background info on the attempt. Both of their social media accounts will also be updated on a regular basis with where they are and how they are doing.

To make the adventure that much more exciting, Ryan and Ryno do not have any accommodation lined up for the attempt and will instead be asking local villagers, in each of the villages that they visit, for food and somewhere to sleep.
