Five men in wheelchairs and their teammates—representing a range of disabilities—trek 21 days through the high Himalaya. From their departure in the Sherpa village of Lukla, the team will attempt to reach an altitude of over 17,500 feet in one of the most inaccessible regions on earth. A Nepali support team is engaged to help push, pull, and carry members over the rugged, steep terrain. In this part of the world, the altitude and intense cold can stop even the fittest of hikers in their tracks. But if the team reaches Base Camp, expedition leader and amputee, Gary Guller, will make a bid for the summit of Everest.More Info
