The Last Nomads of the Everest. The last sherpas of the highest mountain

The camera of director Nischal Poudyal, goes 4000m above sea level to film a small spiritual village called Nurkum. 

The documentary tells the mind blowing story of the last Sherpa family holding the traditional Sherpa profession of the Mountain cow husbandry in the most extreme weather conditions. 

It shoes redemption and pain while holding the old ways of tradition in the backdrop of the modernist way of life.
