The valleys of Nepal, around the Himalayan Mountains - the highest in the world - are rough and scant, but the surrounding countryside is also extremely impressive.

It is the home of a special group of people called the Ghurkhas. Because of the discipline and endurance they exhibit in their daily fight for survival, they are employed in the elite battalion of the British Army.

For more than 200 years, the Ghurkhas have served the crown. Every year, more than 25,000 people apply for a position as a Ghurkhas, with only a few lucky ones chosen. For the chosen ones, it feels as though they have hit the jackpot. For the others, it is considered to be the worst defeat of their life.
