About the Documentary
This must see 55-minute documentary brings a unique flavor to a familiar story: the attempt to climb Mount Everest.
In 2000, the first-ever expedition of Sherpa women to climb Everest was organized. This captivating documentary gives a close-up account of the expedition. Although the Sherpa people are legendary for their unmatched skill in mountaineering, Sherpa women are discouraged from climbing Everest, relegated instead into supporting roles in the climbing industry of Nepal.
Told from a woman’s perspective rarely seen on Everest, this film is both a dramatic and inspiring Everest story and an absorbing portrait of the Sherpa community.
HELP NEPAL Network USA is presenting Daughters of Everest , directed and produced by Sapna Shakya and Ramyata Limbu to raise funds to support the “Conflict Impacted Children” of Nepal.
