Nepal

This journey begins in the Himalayan mountains in Nepal, where resources are scarce as much as air. And goes down to the Rapti river, at the Royal Chitwan National Park and Elephant Breeding Center, where culture, livelihood and local economy for the Tharu indigenous people depends almost exclusively on the resources of the forest, river and animals. Whether in a context of subsistence or cultural manifestation of traditions, whether for wildlife exploration for tourism, peoples relationship with nature can be intimate, sacred and yet cruel and controversial. Where is the line that draw the boundaries? How to balance culture and individual needs with the limits of natural environments and the right to freedom of all species?
