In 1951, the 3rd French expedition to the Himalayas sets out to conquer the Nanda Devi (7,800m). The attempt to traverse the ridge between the main summit and Nanda Devi East resulted in the death of two members of the expedition. Team leader Roger Duplat and Gilbert Vignes disappeared on the ridge somewhere below the main summit. Tenzing Norgay was in a support team on this expedition; he and Louis Dubost climbed Nanda Devi East to look for the missing pair. Some years later Tenzing was asked what was the most difficult climb he ever did, expecting him to say Mount Everest; he surprised his interlocutors by saying Nanda Devi East. Filmed in Gevacolor.
