Manaslu – Mountain of the Spirit

The idea for the movie is based on the life of Hans Kammerlander, his greatest accomplishments, and tragedies.

Since 1996 Hans Kammerlander holds the record for the fastest ascent on the north route to the summit of Mount Everest in 16 hours and 40 minutes, followed by the first ski decent from the highest mountain in the world. This outstanding achievement made him world famous. Hans Kammerlander experienced his most painful moment in 1991 at the Manaslu in Nepal, where he tragically lost two of his best friends.

26 years later Hans Kammerlander and his partner Stephan Keck return to the Manaslu in autumn 2017. This ascent does not only challenge Hans Kammerlander but confronts him with the tragedy from 1991.
