Those who paraglide call it a freeing experience. As you are soaring between sky and earth, there is nothing like experiencing it for the first time either. Get ready to follow a great story with a good group of people in some of the world’s most beautiful surroundings.

The Ski Channel presents: Marmot’s Over Khumbu, tracking an extraordinary expedition to Nepal where sherpas learn to paraglide. Khumbu or also known as the Everest region, is the Napalnese side of Mount Everest. Vast and beautiful and that includes the inhabitants too.

Dick Jackson and our Expedition Leader will take you on a ride you won’t forget. As he’s said about Khumbu and the Sherpas there, “One of the things I love about the Khumbu is its symmetry, all the earth and sky with the Sherpa people living in the balance.”
