Mountain Man

22 mins


Phuntsho Tshering is the only glaciologist in Bhutan. He is also the only person that has permission to climb the sacred mountains. Every year, he travels for days on foot to the most remote corners of the Bhutanese Himalaya, measuring the glaciers as they rapidly melt because of climate change. For Tshering’s 11-year-old daughter Yangchen, the mountain is the home of the “snow lion,” which is both dangerous and in danger of losing its home.
