Video: Climbing Nanda Devi East

Located in a remote area of India, Nanda Devi is considered one of the most beautiful and challenging mountains in the world. Its companion, Nanda Devi East, stands 7434 meters (24,389 ft) in height and is the subject of the fascinating short film you'll find below. The video was shot a couple of years back by a British team that traveled to India to not only climb that peak, but also a 6322 meter (20,741 ft) unclimbed mountain known as Changuch. The 13-minute film chronicles that expedition, mixing in history, culture, and plenty of amazing views.

Very interesting place and climb. Music/sound levels need evening out, and the music towards the end -well, I found it kind of bad.
