While Nepal is mainly known in the western world for its high peaks and its mountaineering, of people in search of a achievement, we choose to focus on the people who live on the slopes of the Everest, in the Khumbu region: The Sherpas. By crossing Nepal and its mountains, we will enter the life of these Sherpas. Their spirituality will lead us to discover an amazing and captivating civilization. We try to understand how and why the greatest lamas in the history of Buddhism came to this region, sometimes establishing large monasteries. We embark on a journey through the history of Nepal by discovering the sanctuaries of pilgrimage.
