Event Details

In April 2011, Sano Babu and Lakpa Sherpa launched a paraglider from Mount Everest’s summit and kayaked the Ganges to the Indian Ocean. Later in the year they won the National Geographic's Adventurer of the Year by a country mile. For one time only, we are lucky enough to have Babu in South London and he would love to show you the film of their epic adventure and answer any of your questions.

Anything is Possible

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.

Babu is a man with a message, a message that he wants to share with the world so please come and join us for an evening you will never forget.

What some other people have said about meeting Babu and seeing the film

"Not knowing anything about the technical aspects of climbing, para-gliding and kayaking before I sat in on this film, I found it quite incredible.The photography of Babu on Everest as a first time mountaineer was stunning and I felt the danger. The part of Babu and his friend on the glider was simply unbelievable, stunning." 

"Babu is breath-taking"

"Even the highest accolades of the National Geographic Society are, in my view, not enough: absolutely DO NOT MISS IT! ''


 

About the Host

Graham grew up in Surrey before venturing off around the world white water kayaking in 2004. Within a few days he had met Babu and within a few weeks they had  had countless adventures and fun times. Babu guided Graham and his brother down some mighty Himalayan rivers and even took them to the village where he grew up to meet his family. Graham and Babu met in Nepal again in April 2012 and immediately began to hatch new plans. Graham was setting up Venturesome Living at the time and soon realised that Babu represented everything that Graham wanted Venturesome Living to. After learing more about Babu he became fascinated not just by the incredible feat of the Everest expedition but also by the message that Babu brings. It's a message that will take time to fully understand but it's one that needs to be shared! And it's relevant to you.
