Two of the most experienced paragliding pilots engage in exploration of the Spiti Valley in the Indian Himalayas. Thomas de Dorlodot – multiple world record holder – leads Horacio Llorens – six times aerobatic world champion – to find out why almost nobody tried to fly in this place where, according to Rudyard Kipling, gods live. Mountains skim skies with their 6500 metres high glaciated peaks. Arid, dry and rocky landscapes produce violent aerial conditions and their remoteness makes oxygen supplies impossible.
Despite risks the athletes take us on an exhilarating scenic discovery of this unique valley and the sky beyond.
