Millions of people across the globe are being forced to leave their homes and seek out safer places to live. This is especially true in the Himalayas, where over 1000 ‘ghost villages’ have been left abandoned due to rising temperatures caused by global warming.

It’s no surprise that our solar system’s most habitable planet, Earth, is becoming increasingly less so. Unless drastic measures are taken, this could lead to what will likely be remembered as The Greatest Migration on Earth.

This devastating human crisis is something that needs urgent action and attention, which is why documentary filmmaker Arun Bhattarai has set out to explore how climate change is forcing the people of the Himalayas from their homes. Join him as he visits these ghost-towns and speaks with those affected, in order to gain a deeper understanding of the situation at hand.

By exploring solutions and giving a platform for discussion on this important matter, Bhattarai’s documentary offers an insight into what can be done before it’s too late.
