The stunning snow-capped mountains of the Himalayas are certainly a joy to behold — or, for some, to climb. For those not up to the cost or exertion of such an endeavor, the Himalaya Film Festival from Nov. 1 to 3 offers an experience in armchair mountaineering.

Stretching about 2,400 km from Nanga Parbat in Pakistan to Namche Barwa in Tibet, the vast Himalayan range also cuts through China, Bhutan, Nepal and India. Apart from its majestic beauty — the loftiest range includes the world’s highest peak, Mount Everest (8,848 meters) — and rich culture, the region is facing various issues: religious and ethnic conflicts, poverty and environmental problems.
