Shows Similar to "Everest Air"
Physician assistant Jeff Evans specializes in high altitude and travel medicine, taking part in 12 Himalayan expeditions, including guiding the first and only blind climber to the summit of Mount Everest. It's those types of compelling challenges and adventures that attract Evans to one of the planet's most mystical places, stories of which are captured in Travel Channel's "Everest Air." The six-part special features unprecedented access to Evans and his skilled crew of Sherpa mountaineers and rescue helicopter pilots. Patrolling Everest's slopes from base camp to its balcony, Evans and the Alpine Rescue Service team go higher and further than any group has gone before to aid climbers in need. It's a unique perspective on what can happen when anyone dares to tackle the majestic peak, which stands a jaw-dropping 29,029 feet above sea level.
