Ultimate Descent: Paragliding From Everest's Peak, Then Kayaking to Indian Ocean

For most people, climbing Mount Everest is the ultimate life adventure and reaching the summit would be the journey's goal, but for two unexpected friends, Sanobabu Sunuwar and Lakpa Tshiri Sherpa, it was only the beginning of their epic voyage together.
In a never before attempted feat, the two Nepali men set their sights on paragliding from Everest's summit and then taking a near 500-mile kayaking trip on the Ganges River to the Indian Ocean in 2011. It was an excursion that would take months. Only four people have ever glided off the top of Everest, and the story of Sunuwar and Sherpa is just as remarkable as their journey. The two men tackled some of the most dangerous terrain and powerful rivers in the world without sponsors and without permits.

Because the cliff at the top was not very high, the initial moments of the leap in the rarified high altitude air were the most critical phase. Rozov needed more time than usual in the thin air to transition from freefall to flying. After that he flew for nearly a full minute at speeds of about 200 km/h (125 mph) along the north face before he landed safely on the Rongbuk glacier - at an altitude of 5,950 meters.

"Only when I got back home did I see how hard it was for me both physically and…
