    The Himalayas

    The Himalayas

    Brando Quilici (1994)

    This is the story of the conquest of Everest and what that achievement has meant to the world. We see climbers who have conquered the mountain and those who have died in the attempt. We meet the Sherpa people, examine the science of mountaineering in high altitudes, hear from expedition leaders and team members throughout their journeys, while cameras capture every peril along the icy peaks. Viewers will be reminded that Everest is a world of illusion, a world that becomes hostile in seconds, with vicious winds and man-killing ice shifts.
