Synopsis

No mountains were summitted, but there is real adventure, told against a background of the sublime beauty of the Himalayas and of the gentle people who inhabit the foothills of Nepal. Sir Chris Bonington CBE, one of the worlds leading mountaineers, Patron of Juniper Trust, Everest veteran Angela travelled from her isolated English valley in the Lake District to Nepal just before the Maoist unrest to research a different book, and found herself on a journey of discovery which would change her life. From a chance meeting with a Tibetan monk in the supermarket before she left, she learnt that the book is not important, but the journey is important. And so she found herself returning to Nepal again and again, becoming immersed in the life of the country, and experiencing a deep spiritual awakening. Her experiences led to the founding of the charity Juniper Trust which supports education and health initiatives in the poorest communities all over the world.
