Urgan, Child of the Himalaya 52' by Corine Glowacki & Philippe Bigot


Urgan is nine years old and lives in an isolated village in the Himalayas. He has never known anything other than this land surrounded by snow capped peaks. In this month of January however, he must leave his family for the monastery and cross the 5,000 meter high Wori La pass.

During his journey, he will be accompanied his nineteen year old cousin, Norbou. They will experience unexpected, fascinating and sometimes frightening spiritual encounters...a true path to enlightenment.
