NEPAL : THE ROADS TO WISDOM | France 5 | Les Routes de l'Impossible

Far from the tourist circuits, the inhabitants of the Gorkha region battle with the monsoon. Mountain villages are cut off for months on end. Convoys of trucks and mule trains struggle to supply the forgotten residents. On their side, the few bus drivers fight for every kilometer gained along the track between the villages of Gorkha and Arkhet. The monsoon’s mud traps vehicles and does not readily release its prey. The monsoon is also the period for seeding the rice. In the rice paddies, Maella, the young truck driver, and his family work to survive from one day to the next. And, as always, the shaman drive away the evil spirits and watch over the tiny people of Nepal.
