The biggest adventure of our lives. We travel three weeks through the north of the indian Himalayas. Through jungle, desert, forest and snow. We make it up to 5000mt, where we sleep in our tents under the brightest stars. Around us the summits of the 6000mt giants. In our hearts, the impressions of one of the most exciting cultures, of our world. The air getÂ´s thinner but our minds become razorsharp. This is not just a physical adventure. ItÂ´s also a mental journey to our inner selfs. IÂ´m alive!

Our journey took us over three weeks from Himachal Pradesh to Kashmir. I went on this trip with a backpacking-startup and it was the first trip of this kind for me. The adventure started at around 2000mt. altitude in Shimla and led us through the jungle-like hillsides of Bashal Peak, the forests of Sangla - spooky covered in fog, the stone- and snowdeserts of Spiti-Valley and finally to the wild of Kashmir. We bushwhacked our path over and under fallen trees, took a bath in an icecold mountain lake and prayed with the monks of the oldest buddhist monastery of India. The hands and feet were cold but the hearts were warm.
To live up to all the aspects of this trip in just 3 minutes is nearly impossible. So I decided to focus on that feeling it gave me and that I still carry around with me. The feeling of the moment. Here and now. No need for tomorrow or yesterday. Contemplating the universe and myself in it. Leaving behind the complexity and getting back to the simple things. Breathing inâ€¦and out. The feeling of being alive, this - for me - is the essence of traveling and the essence of this film.
I hope that I could catch your interest and make you feel at least a little bit, of what I felt and still carry inside.
Of course IÂ´m always available for a personal talk!
Thanks for your attention & time
