From the photogenic alleys of the Old Quarter to the storied tranquility of the Temple of Literature, Hanoi has fiercely defended its identity for more than a millennium, despite successive waves of Chinese, French, Japanese and American influence. Today, in a time of peace, Hanoi’s continues its charm offensive, luring visitors with its tree-lined boulevards and old-Asian allure.

Leaving home on 12th April, TV adventurer and UN Patron of the Wilderness Ben Fogle and former Olympic cyclist Victoria Pendleton CBE will face the greatest challenge of their careers in an attempt to summit Mount Everest. They have completed their rigorous training expeditions and are about to embark on a two month expedition in an attempt to climb the world’s highest peak at 8,848meters, Mount Everest. The expedition is backed by the Anything is Possible Foundation and in its support of the British Red Cross. During the expedition, in Ben’s capacity as UN Patron of the Wilderness, they will also look to highlight the beauty of the pristine Himalayan Mountain region and are ensuring their climb is an ethical climb. Their guide in training and on the expedition is Kenton Cool, the world-renowned mountaineer and adventurer. They are also working closely with high altitude medical expert Dr. Sundeep Dhillon who will be collating live biomedical data from them during the expedition.
They will start their ascent from Kathmandu with a 38 mile (62km) trek from Lukla, a mountain village, to reach Everest Base Camp. This trek will take around 6 days. They will then spend 3 weeks acclimatizing to the high altitude while climbing to camps 1, 2 and 3 each time returning to Base Camp before making their summit attempt in early May. This epic mountain has captured the imagination of Ben and Victoria 65 years after Sir Edmund Hillary made the first ascent. Since then more than 280 people have died in the attempt to conquer Everest and both Ben and Victoria are acutely aware of the risks and challenges they will face.
Ben and Victoria’s expedition will be captured exclusively by CNN Vision as a film crew accompanies them throughout their preparations, charting the entirety of their arduous challenge from the trek to basecamp, acclimatization period, chronicling the journey to the summit, followed by their return to the UK. The ground-breaking documentary, The Challenge: Everest, will air as two half-hours on CNN International in the summer.
