Take a Sec & Read Well...
Here is one indisputable, inspiring & uplifting story; one to tell, one to dream of, one to believe in; a tale for a better world, a better future and the betterment of humankind...

Shot on location in Nepal, Tibet, Israel, Palestine, Jordan, U.A.E, and the US, this story chronicles the spectacular journey of 9 'peace climbers' -- of different religions & cultures --
as they climb to the summit of the tallest mountain of the world.

Palestinian Ali Bushnaq, Israeli's Dudu Yifrah & Micha Yaniv come together, and manage to set aside all their differences, to forge a path of teamwork and cooperation to attempt to summit the world’s highest peak... Not a piece of cake, as it could be narrated
Their nations have been embroiled in brutal war for almost ever; each one believes he is on the right side of that war; yet, each one knows, on Everest, Cooperation is a matter of Life and Death...
The story is all documented in a film recently released on Dvd for everyone to view & meditate what lies within...

Narrated by Orlando Bloom,
directed by Lance Trumbull and hailed as a "tremendous achievement" by the Dalai Lama, Everest: A Climb for Peace is not just a typical Everest film, but one socially relevant and electrifying documentary about Peace, War, and the Human Spirit - a stirring relationship narrated in this film, which won a Gold REMI Award at the 41st Annual Houston WorldFest International Film Festival.
The movie includes some of the most incredible Everest footage ever shot, including a dramatic rescue from near the summit of Everest.

Through the capture & documentation of the "Peace Climbs" in a film, The Everest Peace Project's is definite to reach and inspire millions of viewers across the globe for many years to come, as
"It's through actions of Peace that Peace is spread."
The Everest Peace Project's peace climbs provide not only an invigorating example of peace, team spirit, and friendship - but a call for action for the rest of the world to follow and to create and promote a Global Community with more projects in the same spirit and in line with Peace.

The first Climb for Peace took place in September 2004 on The United Nations International Day of Peace. The Kilimanjaro Climb for Peace followed in 2005.
And year 2006, on May 18th,
ten people were summited the history-making Everest Climb for Peace, documented on film.

Such initiatives can't but motivate people to strive for Peace & Compassion, while it
promotes interfaith and multi-cultural dialogue.
Hats off for all the organisers, all peacemakers and every person who contributed to achieve out of EPP such an awe inspiring event, one can hardly not recognise, appreciate and learn from.
Salam, Peace Out & Keep it Up!!
