<p>A devoted brother climbed a mountain blindfold during a three-day challenge to find out what his "incredible" sister who was born without sight faces everyday.<br></p><p>Brave Ed Smith, 21, said it was “pretty special” to walk in the footsteps of his sibling, Harriet Smith, 31, while admitting the hair-raising feat was “terrifying” at times.</p><p>The student set out on the 72-hour adventure with his girlfriend Eimear Pickstone, 21, who helped him traverse rain-drenched hillsides and bustling cities in Thailand last month.</p><p>And during their epic voyage, his eyes were even covered when Eimear accidentally spun their pick-up truck off the road, leaving him “scared” for his life.</p><p>Ed said he had chosen to do the charity stunt in South East Asia - which has so far raised over £3,400 - to "challenge" himself in a non-english speaking country.</p><p>And when he finally took his blindfold off three days later, he said it first felt like he was “on drugs” before he was left with a massive sense of relief.</p><p>He said: “It was very weird when I finally took the blindfold off, almost like a hallucination experience. It was like I was on drugs, but after that, I was over the moon.”<br></p><p>“But my sister gave me a lot of strength, knowing what I was doing was just a drop in the ocean of the life she has forged for herself in a world that’s not amenable to people without sight.”</p><p>“She was in the forefront of everything I was doing. It was pretty special finding my feet in her world.”</p><p>Ed, from the rural village of Moreton Pinkney, Northamptonshire, started his Challenge on July 11, near the town of Kanchanaburi, on the West of the country.<br></p>
