That's a wrap for Discovery Channel filming in Tibet!! A massive adventure, an amazing crew, and so much learnt along the way about how humans have adapted and ...managed to live in the harshness of high altitude. From working in the tunnels on the most challenging rail line in the world to climbing glaciers and taking samples for analyses of the effects of climate change to visiting a remote village so far away from anything no foreigner has ever been there.
