In the hidden Himalayan kingdom of Zanskar, King Nima Norbu knew that school would never come to the children. So he sent the children to Leh, in Ladakh, in order to attend school. This required a group of children to walk 100 miles down the frozen Zanskar River in temperatures of -40F, sleeping in caves along the way.
