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.

★★★★ "DAZZLING!" - Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

"A FILM OF UNUSUAL VISUAL BEAUTY." - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"BREATHTAKING. Invites us to behold an astonishing world." - A.O. Scott, The New York Times

"Visually and audibly, the Blu-ray is top notch. The transfer looks crisp and is full of the life that each and every fully fleshed out characters themselves embody...Toss in a commentary that is both entertaining and insightful and then a lengthy and dense making of documentary, and you have a release that not only marks this masterpiece's debut on Blu-ray, but also one of the best Blu-ray releases in a few months." - CriterionCast
