Asian Corridor in Heaven (Ch'ama Kodo)
Part of the Insight Asia series, "Asian corridor in heaven" is a six-episode HD documentary series co-produced by KBS and NHK about the world's oldest trade route, the "Ancient Tea and Horse Caravan Road". Pre-dating the Silk Road by 200 years, the Ancient Tea and Horse Caravan Road crossed from the Sichuan and Yunnan provinces of Southwest China over mountainous terrain into Tibet, Nepal, and India. The Caravan Road was not only an important route for the trade of tea and horses, but also a corridor connecting Chinese and Tibetan languages, people, religion, and cultures.
I watched the first episode of this series. It promises to be an amazing look into the ancient trade route. I found it somewhat hair rising watching the horses, men and women negotiate the trail. The visual story is beautiful. ~Mike
