NURSE Janice Watt has climbed Mount Kinabalu in Borneo and completed the Kokoda Trail.

Now she has her sights firmly set on conquering Mera Peak in Nepal.

The Nailsworth resident, who sets off next month, is doing the trek to raise funds for Auricht House in Elizabeth North.

“It’s out at Elizabeth for young people with intellectual disabilities,” Ms Watt says. “It provides respite care for the children so the family can have some time off.”

The 50-year-old has been spending her weekends getting prepared by spending time at the gym and doing low-oxygen training.

“(Mera Peak) is over 6400m high,” she says.

Ms Watt, who completed the Kokoda Trail with her then 16-year-old son Tom in 2010, says her passion is walking.

“I think it’s just the sense that when you go out walking you just forget about everything else that’s going on in your life,” she says.
