I am not holding my breath though.
Finally, Tendulkar will be doing what he should probably be doing - playing tests and ensuring that his legend stays on. Took a long time coming - about a year or two delayed... but better late than never.

a. Dont try the 35 kms in a single day - its as crazy as my guide said it was.
b. Carry warm clothing - trekking socks and gloves if you plan to do it in the winter. [Temperature can go upto -20 in peak of winter. When I went it was about -1 to 0 degrees. Water froze in the bucket and my toothpaste became solid and had to be coaxed out. I could see a lot of ice on the trees and the grass and on the way.
c. If you want to try the guide Siddharth - let me know. I will provide his details.
Updated 29th Nov : d. The guys here keep telling me each time I meet them that 35 kms in 6 hrs is a big thing and they have never seen it till date. So... all the more reason not to try this madness.
