about the film

In march 2010 I travelled to Nepal to do the famous "Annapurna Circuit". While trekking through the Himalaya I got a good insight into the daily life of Nepali people. Their traditions, habits and their overall friendliness and devotedness to help each other and us forigners.
The film features the stunning landscape aswell as some interesting characters and the Himalayan Rescue Association.

about Nepal

The Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal is a landlocked country in South Asia and, as of 2010, the world's most recent nation to become a republic. It is bordered to the north by the People's Republic of China, and to the south, east, and west by the Republic of India. With an area of 147,181 square kilometres and a population of approximately 30 million, Nepal is the world's 93rd largest country by land mass and the 41st most populous country. Kathmandu is the nation's capital and the country's largest metropolitan city.
Nepal is a country of highly diverse and rich geography, culture, and religions. The mountainous north has eight of the world's ten highest mountains, including the highest, Mount Everest. The fertile and humid south is heavily urbanized. It contains over 240 peaks more than 6,096 m above sea level.
By some measures, Hinduism is practised by a larger majority of people in Nepal than in any other nation. Buddhism, though a minority faith in the country, is linked historically with Nepal as the birthplace of Siddhartha Gautama, who as the Gautam Buddha gave birth to the Buddhist tradition. About half of the population live below the international poverty line of US$1.25 a day.
