Synopsis: 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.
