Not good at all
This documentary was poorly made with bunch of amateurs, poor logistic support, unfit team members. They chose to go there in the harsh winter, so they could cross the frozen rivers or lakes. Some of the crew were in make-believe self-redeemed health conditions, so one after the another had to drop out by the help of other members to return to where they came from. The editing was very poor. The 4x4 SUVs they used were the basic light weight entry level trucks, so there were so many times they were trapped in ice, mud, wetland, riverbanks.....they've wasted so many hours to salvage their vehicles. The leader of this expedition was not a capable person, his commands sometimes were disregarded or overlooked due to poor communication and loose disciplines. The Tibetan guide(s?) they hired was often overruled by the leader. There were so many lousy arrangements scene after scene appeared in front of your eyes. They looked more like a bunch of yoyos instead of professionals....I couldn't help myself shaking my head time after time during the viewing. That's how bad it was.
This is the worst and messiest documentary film that I've ever watched. There are many other video expeditions telling the same stories on youtube, so you really don't have to watch this poorly, almost laughable flick.
