Tsering Deki is 20-years-old and Nima Gurung is 18. They've endured gruelling physical and emotional journeys, born in different villages in Nepal, they attended the same school in the far away capital, Kathmandu. The school's called Snowland Ranag Light of Education and is a non-profit organisation which takes kids from remote parts of the Himalayas who wouldn't otherwise get a chance to learn. Most of the children at the school have not seen their families for as long as 12 years. When they graduated, Tsering and Nima made an arduous and lengthy journey across mountains - via the highest inhabited place on the planet - to go back home. Their epic journey was filmed for the documentary Children of the Snowland. There's more information about the film, including details of how to watch, on their website: Image: Tsering Deki and Nima Gurung Credit: Dartmouth Films
