This DVD is definitely worth having in your collection. We first saw this film at the Banff Film Festival when it came through Santa Barbara in February 2012. What these 2 guys did is amazing and this will be one of the coolest outdoor adventure documentaries you will ever see. Babu and Lapka are super cool guys, and to see their achievement first had is an experience. Don't miss out. You got to get this DVD!

View the Trailer:

  • Brilliant footage of paragliding from the summit of Everest
  • Voted National Geographic Adventurers of the Year 2012
  • Record-breaking journey that starts at Everest base camp and finishes at the Bay of Bengal
  • A world first from the 'Kings of Nepal'

"We want to climb the highest peak in the world and fly off it."

And they did. Nepali pilot Babu Sunuwar and Everest Sherpa Lhakpa Tsheri Sherpa successfully climbed Everest in May 2011 - and then flew a tandem paraglider from the summit, covering 30km cross country in just under an hour.

The record-breaking flight was filmed all the way, and this is the result, a spectacular journey to the top of the world, and off it.

That wasn't the end of the journey though - the pair went on to run, paraglide and kayak to the ocean in the Bay of Bengal, an unsupported trip that lasted weeks

The film won numerous awards when it was shown around the world on the 2011 film festival circuit, including top prize at the 2011 Coupe Icare where it received a thunderous standing ovation. The film is an absolute hymn to free flight and the passion of the sport.

The Everest flight succeeded in capturing imaginations around the world and in February 2012 the pair were voted National Geographic Adventurers of the Year 2012 for their feat.

Using digital cameras and GoPros and getting in close to the action, this film takes you with the pair as they fly up and over Everest and through the biggest mountain terrain on Earth before a month-long kayak adventure to the sea.
