The Levitating Monk

Magician Dan White travels to Nepal to learn some of the magical secrets of the Mysterious East. Beautiful exotic landscapes. Folkloric story elements with people fooling each other over power, mystery, magic and  illusion. Completely unbelievable, as the narrator ironically speaks – for he is a professional magician – yet still completely delightful.

Certainly you could watch this only for the flavour of the selected views of easily accessible Bhaktapur, and the romantic colour of the mountains and trails and be still very well entertained. The story elements are extra, and just too much fun. Lamont Cranston would be proud.
