    A mountain climber from America is obsessed by his fear of the Matterhorn, where his father had died on an ascent. Other than begging the question of why he was pursuing mountain climbing to begin with, it does serve as a starting point for the plot. He refuses to climb it as part of a rescue party, which earns him the scorn of a guide who is his rival for the love of a local girl. He finally agrees to make the climb and, during the ascent, the guide tries to kill him.

    German film about a Himalayan expedition and the search for a mountain spirit, who guarded, according to the tradition of the locals, the peaks of high mountains. The long-lost and recently rediscovered and restored film is now a unique cinematic document because it is the first feature film that was shot directly in the Himalayas (up to 6400 m altitude).  Hans Ertl even turned his Bell & Howell to the main summit of Sia Kangri, 7422 m.  Likewise, the film contains footage from India and Tibet, from a time long before the emergence of mass tourism.  With Gustav Diessl, Hans Ertl u.a
