Pilgrimage Part 1
is home to the Himalayas, the highest mountain range on earth.
Covering a distance of 2,700 kilometers, the Himalayas overlook
the landscapes of six Countries: India, Nepal, Pakistan, China,
Bhutan and Tibet. For thousands of years the people of these
regions have considered the Himalayas to be a manifestation
of divinity. Towering above all else on earth, the Himalayas
reach out to touch the heavens. Himalayan Pilgrimage takes
us through the Gandaki Valley - a place frozen in time. The
Pilgrimage begins in Kathmandu the capital city of Nepal,
then moves on to Pokhara, then Jomsom and finally to the sacred
shrine of Muktinatha.

The World's Largest Act of Faith
this occasion, pilgrims from every nook and corner of India
- speaking different languages and dialects, wearing distinctive
markings on their foreheads, donning various types of dress
and observing different manners and customs - meet together
for a holy bath in the sacred waters. Wave after wave, the
pilgrims formed a veritable river of humanity that flowed unto
the banks of the Ganges at Allahabad to celebrate the greatest
spiritual festival ever held - Kumbha Mela, the world's largest
act of faith.
