Since Paul Pritchard became disabled in 1998 he has longed to return to the Himalayan mountain range. However, cycling a specially built recumbent trike is the only way he will be able to return to the mountains he loves and make the pilgrimage to Mount Everest.
The Journey follows Paul and Carol Hurst as they ride over the Himalayas from Lhasa, Tibet to Kathmandu, Nepal. This film takes us over passes with rarefied air above 5000 meters and on gruelling dirt roads as the pair ride all the way to Mount Everest Base Camp.
The Journey is more than an inspirational story of triumph over massive adversity - Carol has arthritic hips and cannot walk further than a hundred metres and Paul cannot use his right side since a boulder fell on his head. It is more a celebration of ability: what can be achieved with determination and patience.
