Although they are in great shape, Mathilda said they suffered from mild frostbite due to the cold mountain air, especially when they had to travel at night.
"We began our walk from Camp 3 to the summit at night," Mathilda told tempo.co via a text message on Tuesday.
Members of the Women of Indonesia’s Seven Summits Expedition Mahitala Unpar (WISSEMU) reached the peak on May 17 at 5:50 a.m. local time.
After descending from the peak, the duo used face moisturizer and face masks to counter the cold that affected their skin. During their hike, they always applied sun block to their faces, "to prevent our skin from getting sore; not necessarily to avoid becoming tanned", said Mathilda.
The WISSEMU team is still in Kathmandu, Nepal, spending their time exploring the city as well as getting pampered at the salon. They are expected to arrive in Jakarta on June 1. (kes)
