Everest: A Climb for Peace is a documentary about the 2006 climb, and is narrated by Orlando Bloom. The documentary has been hailed as a "tremendous achievement" by the Dalai Lama and has received his endorsement.[7]


The climb for peace expedition and the documentary which took five years to plan, execute and put together [8] is about 9 climbers as they climb the north side of Mount Everest.[9] The climbers, of different nationalities and faiths, work together despite their cultural differences to climb the mountain for peace.[10] Although there were 9 peace climbers on the expedition, the film focuses on Palestinian Ali Bushnaq and Israelis Dudu Yifrah and Micha Yaniv.[11] [12]
