Ode to Sagarmatha Part 1

Indian Army Everest Expedition 2001: Ode to Sagarmatha Not another Everest expedition, you would say! But this footage has unique and interesting footage, and sub-stories. We have footage on the visually-impaired climber who summitted this summer. We have footage of Babu Chherri Sherpa, who climbed Everest eleven times before he died, a few days after our interview. He also holds the record for the fastest ascent of Everest (under 17 hours!) and the maximum length of time spent at the summit (some 21 hours!). A lot of similar interesting stories, apart from the main storyline of the Army ascent of Everest, which resulted in eleven climbers atop the summit. Shot on Digi Beta and three 3 DV cameras, between March and June 2001. Over 40 hours of footage!
