1st November 2016

A pair of Preparatory School pupils have completed the first part of their Himalayan adventure.

Lucy Ranales-Griffiths and Tilly Trueman, both Year 3 pupils at Rydal Penrhos, have successfully finished a gruelling four-day trek of the Ghandruk Loop in the Annapurna region of Nepal.

This also included a dawn summit of Poon Hill, which is recorded as 3,200 metres in height, or three times the size of Snowdon.

Following the trek the pair, who are currently on a two-week half term break with family members, when on an Elephant safari Chitwan, South Nepal.

In order to prepare for the trip, the pupils took part in a number of excursions along the picturesque North Wales coastline, including the Holyhead coastal path, hiking to the summit of Snowdon and also gorged up Afon du Dolgarrog ahead of their Asian adventure.

Prep School Head Roger McDuff, said: “This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience that our Tilly and Lucy are having, and it is great to hear that they are embracing it with both hands.

“Not only are the pair great friends, but they are also very valued members of our prep school community at Rydal Penrhos, and we look forward to hearing more about their adventure when they return next week.”
