THE TENTH STEP

A FILM BY THUNDER DRAGON

World-renowned Scottish expedition leader Gerry Moffatt has spent a lifetime guiding in the Himalayas – pioneering first descents on rivers, overlanding, climbing, and exploring remote places in Nepal, India, Tibet, Pakistan and Bhutan. Turning 50, he embarks on a solo motorcycle adventure across the length of the mighty Himalayas – from Ladakh to the eastern edge of Bhutan – to document and better understand the changes he’s witnessed over 30 years of living there.

As challenges and personal tragedies unfold, he discovers that the biggest changes over the past 30 years happened inside of him. The Tenth Step is an inspiring journey through self-discovery and recovery – set amidst a fascinating backdrop of adventure travel history.

Kathmandu.  8:00PM. I’m sitting in the lobby of the Yak and Yeti, eerily bereft of the typical bustling tour groups and tourists this hotel usually hosts.  I’ve only been here one night out of a planned three, but after another large aftershock rumbled through the city mid-day, I’ve just booked a ticket for myself out […]

Grace Under Fire in Kodari

I’m hiking with a team of Global Medic relief workers along a rugged jeep road to Kodari – a remote village in the Sindhupalchok district of Nepal, one of the poorest districts in a poor country.
