Sky River of the Himalayas – From the Source to the Gorge

Klaus Feichtenberger – Production: PRE TV – Austria 2017 – Duration: 53 min. - Area: Nepal, Tibet

Between the Brahmaputra river’s origins and the canyon, along the main ridges of the Himalayas, lies perhaps the most dynamic landscape in the world. The collision of two formerly divided continents, India and Asia, continues to this day, and is responsible for creating both the Himalayas and the river system. The high plateaus near these rivers are often hidden from sight, and provide a habitat for animals and plants that have adapted to the extreme conditions of the high elevations and low temperatures.
