This video came out a few weeks back, and serves as the official trailer for an online series being run on YouTube. It follows two climbers from India who followed their dream of climbing Mt. Everest in Nepal last spring. With high hopes and lots of optimism they set out to tackle the tallest mountain on the planet, but as we all know the April 25 earthquake put an end to those dreams.
This series of videos, entitled Mission Everest 2015, takes us to the Himalaya, where we watch the entire story unfold. So far, there are five episodes to watch, with new ones coming every week or so. This is a very personal look at what the spring climbing season was like this past year, and how everything came to an abrupt and tragic halt.
