Traveller Andrew Daddo begins an intense journey through Eastern India and the Himalayas on the holy river Ganges in Varanasi. He takes a boat trip at dawn and witnesses pilgrims bathing in the ghats along the river and bodies being cremated. He meets strange characters in the narrow, winding streets and alleys of Varanasi - Saddhus (holy men) smoking chillums, beggars and touts. A young boy introduces him to pan (betel nut) and a yoghurt drink called lassi. An overnight train takes Andrew to Agra, home to the famous Taj Mahal. Just outside Agra is Mathura where a large Hindu festival takes place celebrating the birth of the Hindu deity, Krishna. A narrow gauge railway then takes him to Simla, a former British Hill station at the foot of the Indian Himalayas where he learns about Indian history and the British Raj in India. Andrew continues his trip climbing higher into the Himalayas to enjoy the beautiful views of the Kulu valley, before taking a short bus journey to Manali, where Andrew prepares for the climax of the trip, the Manali to Leh trek. Andrew sets off in a jeep with two trekkers - Chris and Bob. They take him up the second highest Pass in the world, the Tag Lang La, past Buddhist gompas and finally, to Leh, a lost city populated by Tibetan refugees isolated from the world nine months of the year, perched in the Himalayan Mountains amidst a breathtaking lunar landscape.
