Anything is possible – new film

| July 25, 2012

Paragliding in front of mountain

In April 2011, Sano Babu and Lakpa Sherpa launched a paraglider from Mount Everest’s summit and kayaked the Ganges to the Indian Ocean. Working with borrowed gear and a bare-bones budget, the two men had no corporate sponsors or social media campaigns, just the essentials for adventure — vision, creativity, and friendship.

Later in the year they won the National Geographic’s Adventurer of the Year by a country mile. On 21st August Babu will be at the Whirled Dart cinema in South London, sharing the film of their epic adventure and answering any of your questions.

Babu had never climbed a mountain before. Lakpa had never kayaked before and couldn’t swim. Neither of them had even seen the Ocean and nobody even knew if there ‘were enough molecules in the air’ to fly from Everest’s summit. And yet they did it, and they did it on a shoestring budget with spirit, faith, friendship and a sense of humour that leaves audiences totally enchanted.
