Will your gods forgive you the sins committed out of love to your child? Ngada Sherpa and his wife Jomdoe from Nepal, break a taboo and climb Kumbhakarna – one of the most holy of mountains, to earn money for their son’s school and save him from a dangerous and degrading work as a porter.

The Holy Mountain confronts both the climbers and Sherpas with equal harshness.
