Nepal – Close to heaven

Part 1: From Ilam to Kathmandu | Part 2: From Manang to Bhim Datta

A film by André Hörmann | 2020 | arte | ZDF

 

A two-part documentary series

Nepal: one of the poorest countries on earth and yet a fairytale-like, mystical kingdom of gods and a spiritual paradise.

A country between rain forests and mountain deserts, tropical hot regions and icy cold mountains. A country of ancient cultures and a turbulent history, a religious country between tradition and modernity, a country which is inhabited by almost 100 tribes and ethnic groups who speak just as many languages. While the South is mostly inhabited by Indo-Aryan tribes, the North is predominantly populated by Mongolian tribes from Central and East Asia. Among them innumerous mountain tribes and Tibetan Sherpas.

 

Both films explore interesting and impressive locations in this unique country along the Mahendra Highway, the only continuous road leading from East to West, the main artery of the country.
