Escape over the Himalaya

Every year, hundreds of Tibetan children attempt the dangerous escape into exile in India. Many break down in the snow and die from exhaustion and the cold.

We followed a group of refugee children across the snow passes of the Himalayas, all the way to the safe haven of Dharamsala, home to Tibet’s spiritual leader, His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
