No moment is too high for four South African women, who will soon leave for Nepal to prepare for an epic climb to the summit of Mount Everest.

Alda Waddel, Lisa Gering, Deshun Deysel and Tumi Mphahlele have been through intensive training to prepare to become the first all-female South African team to complete the gruelling climb to the summit of what is considered earth’s highest mountain.

The four, along with their climb organiser, Ronnie Wuhl, will head to Nepal on April 1, before trekking to base camp where they will prepare for the climb.

As part of their training, the climbers completed the Nine Peak Challenge, which involves ascending to the highest point of each province in South Africa.

It will take about two weeks for these inspiring women to reach the top.

They were recently sponsored with down suits made especially for them by active-clothing brand K-Way in preparation for their journey.
