People of the World: People of the Himalaya
People of the Sherpa (Part 1): Mount Everest is the earth's highest mountain, with a peak at 8,848 meters above sea level. For more than half a century, Mount Everest has been the scene of many exploits. The legend of Everest is probably the most exciting story of modern mountaineering. This story could have never been written without the help of a unique people: the Sherpas.
People of Zanskar (Part 2): At over 4,000 meters above sea level, a nation of monks and peasants lives in the observance of ancient Tibetan traditions. Here, nothing has ever changed for centuries. Welcome to Zanskar!
