Secrets of Tibet

Mythos Tibet - Dem Geheimnis auf der Spur

It is 75 years since Heinrich Harrer, a swashbuckling explorer and mountaineer reached Tibet. He escaped from a British prisoner-of-war camp in India, then hiked across the high Tibetan plateau, dodging bears and bandits before arriving in the forbidden city of Lhasa, penniless and with his shoes in tatters. Only five years after his arrival Tibet was occupied by China, forcing the Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader of Tibet, into exile. We retraced Heinrich Harrer's route from India, through the Himalayas to Lhasa, to discover what remains of Tibet's unique spiritual culture. We hear from Harrer's fellow escapees and the Dalai Lama, with whom he retained a friendship all his life.
