Way to Everest: Ep3 - An unforgettable skate trip to Everest

The team leave Lhasa to skate the crazy spots which lie around the foothills of the Himalayas – five-kink hubbas, anyone?

However, our mission was to hit some of the pristine architecture which can be found in the small chain of towns that run up to the incomparable Mount Everest itself. Much of the architectural design here favours smooth, hard surfaces because the biting cold and dense snow are a bigger concern than rainfall at this height.
