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 East face of the mountain (7710 m) is one of the most difficult challenges in alpinism
today. A group of leading alpinists from the Western world take part in the expedition. The Holy
Mountain confronts both the climbers and Sherpas with equal harshness.
