Mushroom at the Top of the World

Goba z vrha sveta

Yarsagumba, also known as ‘Himalayan gold’, is a rare mushroom that is picked in the remotest corners of the Nepal Himalayas. A decade ago Nepal was struck by the yarsagumba trading craze, as the prices of the mushrooms soared. Since then the local population has become increasingly dependent on this precious resource. The documentary addresses the issues of rural Nepal and portrays the people and their resilience in daily struggles to make a living in the relentless mountainous landscape.
