INDUS RIVER: JOURNEY OF A LIFETIME is the story of one man's fulfillment of a boyhood dream. Growing up in Pakistan, Dr. S. Amjad Hussain always dreamed of exploring the Indus River. Between 1987 and 1996, the respected surgeon and newspaper columnist undertook a series of journeys to the Indus, culminating in an expedition to locate its source high in the Himalayas. The program follows Dr. Hussain, his sons and their American friends as they experience the incredible mountain vistas and scenic beauty of the Pakistani mountains and Arabian Sea on a trek to the source of the Indus in Tibet.
