Seven Years in Tibet - Movie Synopsis & Plot

Share:

In 1939, two Austrians, Heinrich Harrer and Peter Aufschnaiter, ventured into the Himalayas, planning to climb Nanga Parbat, one of the highest peaks. Harrer, selfish and ignorant, went up there to seek fame and glory but would end up discovering himself.

After being taken prisoners by the British, they escape and undergo a two-year journey through the Himalayas, attempting to cross Tibet and arrive in China. Instead, they would end up in Lhasa, the religious Tibetan city of the Dalai Lama, a boy at the time. A place where few strangers had ever been, they are overwhelmed by the culture changes, but at the same time impressed by their peaceful ways.

While Peter sets his own life, Harrer is brought into the liking of the Dalai Lama himself, the boy who wishes to learn everything about the world. Even though Harrer doesn't know all the answers, he introduces new ideas and inventions into the ancient civilization and ultimately becomes best friends with the religious leader. But even their friendship may not be able to last when the Chinese send troops into the peaceful country, seeking conquest.
