Heart of the Himalaya

Heart of the Himalaya reveals the beauty, the wonder and the resilient heart of the people who inhabit the world’s loftiest mountains, the 2400 km long Himalayan range. Pat & Baiba’s hour long A/V presentation distills decades of travel and immersion in the Himalaya into a celebration of its diverse mountain cultures. On bike, on foot, on climbing expeditions, on assignment to document events and rituals, Pat and Baiba collected their own nomadic vision of being a denizen of the Himalaya. The presentation has its origins in a photo exhibit at the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies that morphed into an eBook. Photos and video clips from Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan, northern India and Pakistan, and China’s Xinjiang Uygur and Sichuan provinces.
