In The Foothills Of The Himalayas These People Live Their Lives In Serene Beauty.
You've probably heard about the Sherpas, or at least have some knowledge about their existence in the mountains of Nepal. The history and survival of this ethnic group is truly fascinating, so if you want to learn more, take a look at this intimate video portrait of Sherpas in the Khumbu Mountains.
This Nepalese ethnic group has about 150,000 members of all ages. Their entire economy is built around their climbing skills and endurance, and while most of them act as guides, other Sherpas work to secure climbing routes and obtain supplies closer to sea level.
They have built entire communities above the clouds, but those communities are quite fragile: The Sherpas have one of the most dangerous jobs in the world, and over the years, many Sherpa families have lost husbands and brothers during climbing tours. However, their commitment to their centuries-old practice remains strong, and their world is one of the most beautiful we can possibly imagine.
