“I’ve never had a worse journey in my life,” says the old man sitting in the rear of the jeep, clinging tightly onto the fittings of the SUV. “What with rock falls, landslides, crashed trucks, snowfall on the high ground… that road is a real nightmare!” The Karnali Highway, in the North West of Nepal is the most dangerous road in the country. It’s 250 kilometres long and links the town of Surkhet, in the valley, to Jumla, altitude 3,000 metres. It sometimes takes five days to make the trip. Hewn out of the rock on the flank of the mountain set in an outstanding natural background, this road, opened barely two years ago, is finally allowing the population of this, the poorest region of Nepal to open up to the rest of the country, to move about and, above all, to bring in supplies of every type. Drivers of trucks, jeeps and even tractors, travellers, shopkeepers who go down to the valley for supplies, public transport, columns of people on foot walking for several days to get to their village… for them the road, despite everything, is the safest and fastest way of getting around this mountainous region. For several weeks, we accompanied all those who, willingly or otherwise, take this “impossible highway”.
"Hey, this bag has a hole in it!" That's okay. It'll be fine. "Okay, sign this form saying if it's lost, you'll take responsibility." Because if it's lost the driver will be charged for it. That's why the merchant likes the young man. He doesn't make sure all the t's are crossed and the i's dotted.
Even in the USA, one out of every 122 babies born will someday die in a motor vehicle crash. It is a part of our way of life that we simply don't worry about. The other 121 babies will die some other way; a few will die along the way, and a few will live to be very old. But in the end, they [we] will all experience some kind of death. Nothing to worry about, of course.
I remember taking a treker to pokhara hospital. it was so poor with hardly any drugs and equipment. I was shocked and it eas in 1986. medecin sans frontieres and love hope strength foundation do great work.
The Indian Mahindra turbo-charged Jeep-styled 3/4 ton SUVs seem pretty durable, nimble and capable vehicles, ably complementing the initiative and demands of drivers, crew, businesses and passengers, just the thing for medium-light-duty hauling on the rugged tracks of the Himalayan frontier country. Nicely-done, sensitive and thoughtful docu!
Justin Betland haha I am no sir. But ya these nomads are very peculiar in d sense of nature and living of the grid. Nature lovers and don't believe in school and outside world. Routeys tribes are good at hiding . Even I have not met them.
The translation is not very accurate if you can understand the conversation then it is very very interesting to watch the documentary... but I admire the hardwork done by this team to create this documentary.. THANK YOU SO MUCH....!
Nepal is very beautiful same like Pakistan awesome city people's don't know this life I live in Hongkong but I love to explore Pakistan rural areas so beautiful so humble can't explain how lovely to live in these areas so pure so untouched lovely life
Azad Jatt I love the pahari people in chitral and nepal. it was awesome and I feel so blessed to have met such poor yet spiritually rich and good people who smile. god bless them all. they are way better than the affluent around the world.
to all these people who think people existing in poor economies and who do what they have to do..are automatically good people when paired up against the "western youth"..you ignore the fact that these economies are a result of collective effort ,social norms and social problems. If the government does not make safe roads..then that means its people who MUST use that road are inherently good people? Some of you are a bit lazy in your thinking.
Wow and our young people complain! These young people grow up so fast and death is always a possibility, yet their responsibility to their families are very strong and they take it so seriously. We can certainly learn from these people.
Damn that kid is tough...the look on his face right after the narrator says, "...makes up for that backbreaking work." is a look of hate/anger...I empathize with him, hope he makes his way to a better life.
The Hindu bureaucrats (Bahuns and Chettris) of Nepal eats all the money and resources leaving nothing for the citizens...Neither they let anyone other than own community be in parliament favoring nepotism...Brainwashing the innocent and gullible citizens through media and blaming other countries for the misfortune other than themselves....They are busy promoting beef ban and Hiduism while eating the money they get from missionaries and foreign aids....I salute the Nepalese people for being resilient even when they have shitty incompetent leaders and having faced with abject poverty but carrying on and not giving up....The bureaucracy has ruined and looted Nepal time and time again making people suffer the ramifications...It's time the Nepalese people realise that the Government is the problem...
Dx Fire Ok I get it hindu ( especially bahun and chettri )are not citizen of Nepal this means more than 90% of hindu people are not Nepali citizen.Because most of the caste(newar,tamanag,rai,limbu,pariyar,yadav,chaudary and lots of other caste) follow religion related to hindu so all of them are not citizen of Nepal.Only minority people who worship Jesus must be the citizen of Nepal . ( Christanity people which was never found in Nepal in past some years back now stand in about 1-2 percent peope who follow christian religion).So in conclusion minority people should be given more post in government organization and people with majority should be in least post in government organization.So that people with minority should be flourish and with majority should collapse into poverty.Then it will be tit for tat.Good thinking educated dumb.Position post should be given according to qualifications and ability not with caste,religion or sex.When educated people think like that I feel ashamed being Nepali.We are new generation and we should change thought if you thought like that you are an educated dumb.Dont start talking about caste new generation people, eduction change the thoughts of people (who are good) but senseless and manner less dumb people remain always senseless,manner less and dumb even they are educated.Talk about making equality people.If new generation people think same as old forefather then its your fault.Mind can be changed with yoga and meditation follow our old culture of yoga and meditation from hindu religion it will help you alot in changing mind with good spirit.Jai Shiva Shambo may he be with you to change your view Bhagwan le rakchaya garun sadd buddi diun sab nepali lai.Jai Bholenath Jai Nepal.
So u motherfucking moron when u abuse hindus nd say that u SALUTE NEPALESE COMMUNITY then whome r u addressi g is it nepalese hindis or non hondis Only coz nepal majority is hindu...ur speech itself shows. Your hatred u fucking terrorist...shaaabji
let's, the reality is that they aspire to be as rich, pampered, and spoiled as any Westerner watching this doc. Kind of ironic, huhh?? People work hard to get away from hardship, that is the entire story of human civilization.
Love these doc's. The young boy who made his way back from India to his family was such a good kid. Bringing back all those things for his family on his back. Kids today in the west have no clue what hardship and hard work really is.
Sam333: It's not that they're not bothered. It's that they have no clue as to what life is like over there, they don't know long it will be before he returns, there's no means of communication with him, and there's nothing they can do about any of these things. So, they're stoic about it all. They don't worry, or learn not to show their worries to others.
True, we people today don't know the hardships even of our grandfathers generation. My grandfather was a carpenter & i inherited his toolbox. Its big, filled with very heavy tools. It takes TWO young guys to lift it- and he used to carry it to worksites everyday.
