World most beautiful country-Nepal [02:10]
Chasing angels or fleeing demons, go to the mountains of Nepal.Nepal is one of the richest countries in the world in terms of bio-diversity due to its unique geographical position and altitude variation. The elevation of the country ranges from 60 meters above sea level to the highest point on earth, Mt. Everest at 8848 meters, all within a distance of 150 kilometers resulting in climatic conditions from sub-tropical to arctic. This wild variation fosters an incredible variety of ecosystems, the greatest mountain range on earth, thick tropical jungles teeming with a wealth of wildlife, thundering rivers, forested hills and frozen valleys. Within this spectacular geography is also one of the richest cultural landscapes anywhere. The country is a potpourri of ethnic groups and sub-groups who speak over 93 languages and dialects. Nepal offers an astonishing diversity of sightseeing attractions and adventure oppurtunities found nowhere else on earth. And you can join in the numerous annual festivals that are celevrated throughout the year in traditional style highlighting enduring customs and beliefs.
Recital at Tilicho Lake (4910m altitude) of "Tilicho Lake" by David Whyte [01:31]
Marcus Sorensen recites the poem "Tilicho Lake" by David Whyte in front of that same lake at 4910m altitude in Nepal. It is the world's highest lake, and frozen over for most of the year. It took 8 days' trekking to reach it with local sherpas. It is vast, at over 4km in length, and described by adventurer Maurice Herzog as "The Great Ice Lake", when he passed it on his way to do the first 8000m+ mountain climb in history at the nearby Annapurna Peak. Marcus was inspired to visit it to "see the true shape of [his] own face". With gratitude to Daphne Bouma-Jansen for the idea.
