Sikkim Dreams – a cool little short documentary film all about our hugely memorable climbing trip to the Himalayas of North India as part of the 2016 Irish Sikkim Expedition has been chosen as part of the ‘Official Selection’ for screening at this years Killarney Mountain Festival!
Produced by expedition team member Richard Creagh it is a really cool little montage and giving a real flavour of a month long trip condensed into 21 minutes with a super soundtrack. Delighted it made it through to the main festival programme and will be mad to see us all on the Big Screen in Cinema Killarney!
Well done Richard Creagh Photography for the effort of putting it all together.
The 4 week long exploratory and at times immensely challenging expedition to an area of Northern Sikkim initially led the team through an extremely remote and rarely frequented thickly vegetated valley and after 5 days of difficult trek finally brought them to a high glaciated lake ringed with awe-inspiring towering 5000+ metre unclimbed peaks. The teams main objective was to attempt to try and reach the summit one of these massively inspiring, breath taking and never before climbed virgin peaks and its with profound satisfaction and amazement we can say the team were indeed successful in their aims of both exploring this spectacular valley and region and summiting some of its stunning unclimbed peaks.
Check it out along with four other amazing short films when it gets its Irish Premier on the Big screen at Cinema Killarney on Saturday 10th of March at 4pm. Tickets available at the box office.
