Wheelchair-bound man's inspiring journey across China

29-year-old Quan Peng is fighting discrimination against people with disabilities by trekking across China using his wheelchair.

Peng who became paralyzed from the chest down 14 years ago due to a failed surgery was denied work due to his disability.

After overcoming a long journey with depression and suicidal thoughts, Peng decided to travel the world alone through his wheelchair.

Peng has been sleeping on roadside tents as hotels couldn't provide spaces that were wheelchair accessible.

Peng's inspirational journey is to change the view of people in China and prove them that disabled people can survive independently.

Peng had set out from Beijing in 2014 and plans to arrive at his final destination in Sanya in January 2017.
