This is Dolma, in 1959 her mother had to escape from the Chinese,  she strapped a 3 year old Dolma to her back and, carrying her child and minimal supplies, spent three months walking the perilous route to Nepal across the Himalayan mountains.  Dolma is unsure of the details of her mother’s escape but knows they left her father, four sisters and one brother behind and has only reunited with one sister since.

This and many other stories and photos will be included in an upcoming interactive documentary project which is still in production. Watch this space.
