Janhukot is a mountain buried deep in the heart of the Indian Garwhal Himalaya, at the end of the long Gangotri glacier and the head of the sacred source of the Ganges River.

Surrounded by some of the jewels of the Himalayan mountains—Shivling, Meru, Kedar Dome—Janhukot has an allure all of its own; mountaineers have strived in vain on this far flung summit as far back as the 1980s.

In May 2018, three British climbers—Malcolm Bass, Paul Figg and Guy Buckingham—set out to attempt the first ascent of Janhukot. They filmed their experiences along the way, in the hope that by sharing their mental and physical struggles to camera, they could encourage others to attempt similar adventures, and prove that with some sacrifice and training, ordinary people can do extraordinary things.
