    MailOnline helps to break the record for the world's highest dinner party by eating a meal served at 23,000ft on EVEREST.

    MailOnline Travel's Sadie Whitelocks went on an expedition with former special forces officer Neil Laughton.

    I'd never felt so exhausted, I had a nagging headache and ice was steadily forming on the tip of my nose in the -20 degrees Celsius whipping wind.

    I started to think that accepting an invitation to the world's highest dinner party on Mount Everest might have been one of the silliest things I'd done but not one to give up easily, I continued slogging my way up the 1km-high ice wall in a bid to not let my expectant dinner host down.

    Former special forces officer Neil Laughton, a 54-year-old avid adventurer, first tried hosting the world's highest dinner party in 2015 but the Nepalese earthquake struck and the mission had to be aborted.

    Now he was back on the mountain with a new team, including myself, to have another bite at the cherry.

    The dinner party table was finished off with plastic flowers and candelabras.

    The world's highest dinner party took place in the morning to allow for better weather. Below from left to right, Sherpa Nima, expedition team member Jane Chynoweth, Sadie Whitelocks and team leader Neil Laughton.


    In total there were eight of us taking part in the sky-high dinner, with one team member sadly forced to leave the table due to exhaustion mixed with altitude sickness.


    It was a very surreal experience witnessing a white-clothed table sitting close to the peak of Everest.

    Laughton had insisted on the edition of a candelabra and yellow plastic lilies, which certainly lifted the mood.



    With us all gathered around the table, complete with chattering teeth, we settled in for our record breaking feast.



    The expedition team had a dress rehearsal dinner at Everest base camp where the weather was much sunnier.

    To get to the world's highest dinner party, Sadie and the team had to scale a 1km-high ice wall.

    The weather around Mount Everest (pictured is the summit) can change wildly throughout the day, with sunshine giving way to furious snow showers

    How they passed the nights before getting to 23,000ft.
