Filmed over seven months in the forbidden Dolpo region of Nepal, HIMALAYA tells the story of a generational struggle for the leadership of a tiny mountain village between its proud old chief and a headstrong young caravanner. The balance of power shifts uneasily as they make their annual salt trek across the Himalayas.

A visually striking and spiritually captivating portrait of life in one of the world's most extraordinary places, HIMALAYA is both intense drama and a gorgeous tapestry of the fast disappearing traditions of Tibetan life.

A huge box office hit in Europe, HIMALAYA also enjoyed great popular success in the U.S., where it remained on the VARIETY top film box office chart for over six months.

"Rousing outdoor adventure...fascinating...visually stunning drama" - William Arnold, Seattle Post Intelligencer

**** "Dazzling" - Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

"A film of visual beauty" - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times

  • Official Selection Toronto International Film Festival
