The peaks of Everest are said to be the most challenging and dangerous in the world — a feat few dare to take on — but imagine climbing it blind.
Shabu Hussein tackled more than 5,000 metres to the Everest Base Camp with the help of his wife Shaida and a Sherpa mountain guide.

It took them 14 days trekking through the Himalayas of Nepal, but the couple says it was worth it.
