December 12 presents in cinema Aribau in Barcelona (Spain) documentary film that traces the journey of Kilian Jornet, Jordi Tosas and Seb Montaz in Langtang. In this video they explain what they saw there after the earthquake of April 25, 2015.
Kilian Jornet, mountain racing champion, said on his website:
Summits of My Life has a new challenge, and it isn’t about running: we want to build 116 houses in the Langtang valley.
After our experience in Nepal, we want to continue helping the people of Langtang, who have lost everything. We would like to collect funds for an NGO which has plans to build 116 houses for the few Langtang residents who survived, to enable them to return home and leave the refugee camps in Kathmandu.
Thank you very much Kilian and friends!

“Kilian Jornet presents ‘Langtang‘, the third film in the Summits of My Life project. Directed by Sébastien Montaz-Rosset, the film is the story of a journey to the heart of Nepal.
In April 2015, ultra runner Kilian Jornet is preparing for an expedition to Everest as part of his project, `Summits of My Life’, together with alpinist Jordi Tosas and filmmaker Sébastien Montaz-Rosset.
Two days before departure, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake hits Nepal with devastating effect and Jordi’s beloved Langtang Valley is all but eradicated. Putting their original objective to one side, the team travel to Nepal with the hope of offering help in the place that they hold in their hearts.”
