 FILMING

EQUIPMENT USED

   

CANON EOS 500D

SIGMA 150 500

TAMRON 90

CANON 10 22

Goecha La in Search of Kangchenjunga was shot on Canon 500D. Goecha La in search of Kangchenjunga was the first attempt to document this high altitude pass and solar powered cameras were used in the making of the film.

The film proved that the equipment could survive such harsh conditions and solar panels can be used to film in the Himalayas



"In December 2011, ZY and I went on a little trekking trip to Goecha La. It was an unusually cold December and the snow has set in early. It was off peak season due to the cold and we were mostly by ourselves up in the mountains. Before heading up, the weather was really bad and 2 teams actually dropped out. However with a little bit of luck, we had pretty good weather along the way and great views.

The night was still bitterly cold, especially for a tropic animal. Winds were strong and on certain nights temperature went around -10C to -15C. It certainly didnt help when the tent I shared with George practically ripped off in the middle of the night. Well at least the stars were awesome. A great trip I'll always remember. Happy Days"
