This award-wining film is a Journey through the Sikkim and Nepal Himalayas: 14 day trek along the Singali la ridge, overlooking the views of Mount Kangchenjunga and Mount Everest.

With ten porters, two guides and a cook, the team of three: George, Alexa and Blanchet starts their epic trek from Yuksam in West Sikkim.

The team head north to Goecha La Pass to see early morning views of Mount Khangchenjunga and, then head west to the border of Nepal or the Singalila Ridge.

From there they head south along the Singali La ridge to see Mount Everest and Mount Khangchenjunga.

On the 13th day, the team reach a remote village at the border of India and Nepal, inhibited by a nomadic yak herder. The film was shot using camera powered by custom made solar chargers, as there was no power facility during the entire trek.

George was affected by Keratoconus, a rare eye disorder which decreases the thickness of cornea and results in a distorted vision, during his childhood. During his teenage years, he lost all his hopes about life as this took him away from what he wanted to do in his life and what he dreamed. George finds that traveling is one of the best medicines for his eyes and end up trekking in the Himalayas to find solace and tranquility.
