Namaste Himalaya – How a village in Nepal opened the world to us

Posted by on in Documentary Feature


At the outbreak of the pandemic, the two world travellers Anna and Michael are stranded in one of the poorest countries in the world. When Nepal suddenly announces a lockdown and seals off its cities, they flee into the mountains. At the foot of the eight-thousanders they find refuge and a corrugated iron roof over their heads. In the village, they are greeted cynically with “Namaste Corona”, because the locals fear that the globetrotters might carry the virus in their luggage. But as food becomes scarce and hunger sets in, cohesion grows. Field workers, beggars and mountain guides become their friends – and the two of them become students of a philosophy of life that is full of devotion.

Directors: Anna Baranowski, Michael Moritz

    Namaste Himalaya – this preview looks so good. I have been to NEPAL 15 times and this reminds me of why I love the people and the country so much. I hope to be able to see the whole film.
