A brief look at one of the worlds most amazing countries. A rough guide to Nepal takes you from the capital Kathmandu to the Himalayan mountains and the towering Mount Everest.

I spent three months working in Kathmandu, Nepal’s capital, as a volunteer at an orphanage/school, living with a Nepali family. In this time i saw and did so many amazing things and was lucky to capture some on video. Like climbing to Mount Everest Base Camp, a 14 day hike. The mountains you see in the film are Everest and the surrounding summits.
My aim with this film was to highlight the poverty that the majority of the people face, but focus on the amazing attitude its people has regardless of their situation. Nepali’s really are an amazing people.
After learning so much about the culture, its people and its language, i hope to return in the near future to work on a documentary that looks deeper into this wonderful country.
