I have always believed that travel is an adventure. 的quest of the unknown 和 the joy of trying something new are all a part of the great adventure. Sometimes adventures go wrong. 我们是 often trapped in situations that go beyond our control. Have you ever thought what would you do if you are stuck in a near-death situation? How will your survival instincts work? Well, reel life has plenty of such situations. These survival movies will bring you face to face with people battling the wilderness 和 the harsh nature, only relying on their instincts 和 zeal to live on. While some have a happy ending, some clearly do not. But each of these survival movies does teach a lesson.

的movie takes place in 泰国, where else?! Backpacker, Richard (Leonardo DiCaprio) is in Bangkok when he is given a map to a secret island with a legendary beach. He makes his way to the secret island with a French couple 和 discovers a small community of travellers who live on the island in secret. It doesn’理查德需要很长时间’他的天堂变成了他的噩梦’t escape.
的thing I love most about 的Beach is how it is so relatable to how we want to travel (except the ending!) We all want to do something different on our adventures, only to find that everybody else has the same idea. So we all end up visiting the same places 和 doing the same things. 但是，偶尔会发生并且常常发生一些神奇而出乎意料的事情。
After watching the movie, I was so intrigued 通过 the idea of travelling 和 went on my first year-long backpacking trip after university. 的first stop on my adventure was, of course, 泰国, 和 even though places like Bangkok 和 Koh Phangan were portrayed well in the movie, I still loved it!
Watch the movie before, or even during, any trip to 泰国 和 I can almost guarantee that you will relate to the movie just as much as I did! Something to think about when you consider that 的Beach is twenty years old!
Touching the Void is another documentary about the mountains that tells the miraculous story of one man surviving a climbing accident in the Peruvian Andes.

When he reaches 阿拉斯加州, he sets up a campsite in an abandoned bus. At first, he is happy with isolation, the beauty of nature, 和 the thrill of the land. Later he found out that he is insufficiently prepared 和 wants to come back. Unfortunately, the frozen stream he crossed in the snow has become an impassable river. 的whole journey brings him to the final 和 tragic realization that “幸福只有分享了才真实”.
我很幸运在阿拉斯加的荒野中度过了整个夏天，当时她在Denali国家公园以北，距离实际魔术巴士仅30公里的Healy牧场上工作。您还可以看到公共汽车的复制品，该复制品用于在Healy的49th State Brewery拍摄电影。由于明显的原因，不建议尝试乘公交车，已经有数名游客从该地区被救出。
的movie North Face is like a classic when it comes to survival movies or stories. 的film is based on a true story when two German climbers Toni Kurz (Benno Fürmann) 和 Andi Hinterstoisser (Florian Lukas) attempt to take on the Eiger’s 5,900-foot near-vertical infamous North face during the rise of Nazi Germany. At that time, climbing the North Face was considered next to impossible 和 was named as the “Death Wall”.
Danny Boyle creates magic once again on screen in 127 Hours. 的movie is based on the book of adventure enthusiast Aron Ralston, who gets trapped 通过 a boulder in the middle of nowhere in the Grand Canyon. Aron (played brilliantly 通过 James Franco) goes for a weekend hike in the Blue John Trail 和 inadvertently his arm gets pinned 通过 a huge boulder. With limited supply of food 和 water, he survives inside the crevice for 127 hours 和 finally decides to do the unthinkable to survive.
的movie captures the beauty of the Grand Canyon in a great way, but it is the never die attitude of Aron that is left behind with us. And not to mention, the background score 通过 A R Rahman is simply brilliant.
的Way Back (2010)
If there is one survival movie that I can watch over 和 over, it has to be 的Way Back. It was one of those movies where I truly felt as if I was enduring the journey with the cast. Based on a true story, the film is about a group of WWII prisoners of wars who escapes from Siberian Gulag 和 travels 4000 miles on foot to their freedom. They start from Siberia, trek all the way to Lake Baikal, continue their journey through the deserts of Mongolia 和 then through Tibet, finally reaching 印度.
的movie, though not fully shot in the original locations does make the traveller in me yearn to visit those places. And for the time being, the movie does take me to those destinations virtually!

李安（Ang Lee）的《 Pi的一生》（Life of Pi）是对男孩Pi和孟加拉虎Richard Parker之间不可思议的友谊的美好，视觉和哲学的诠释。
Pi和他的家人在本地治里拥有一个动物园，但是活动破裂后，他们决定带着最珍贵的动物搬到加拿大。 不幸的是，他们登上的船沉没了，经过一系列令人心碎的事件，只有Pi和老虎在救生艇上还活着。 的heart of the movie focuses on the desperate journey of the unusual couple to find land, 和 on a series of flashbacks. 的story is enticing 和 moving, beautifully filmed thanks to Ang Lee’s talent for photography.
的landscapes of Kerala’s tea plantations, temples 和 the infinity of the ocean are extremely evocative. Thanks to this movie, Munnar is definitely on my bucket list of places to visit in 印度.
This is one of my favourite travel movies of all times. 的movie is about a young girl who goes on hiking 1100 miles on the Pacific Trail Coast after the loss of her mother. Unprepared 和 with a giant backpack on her back, Cheryl (Reese Witherspoon) crosses the dusty Mojave desert, forests, snowfields 和 muddy trails. She loses her toenails as well as the clutter on her mind 和 gains a mental clarity 和 perspective for life. I still remember the scene when she takes out all the heavy books from her backpack at the advice of Ed. I think that was when she started shedding her clutters.
的movie succeeds in capturing the struggles 和 exhausting on attempting something super difficult. Anything above 5000 meters is extremely challenging 和 Mt Everest is 8848 m !!!
的very next year after watching the movie, we trekked up the Stok Kangri峰会 在6153m。由于这是我们的首次5000m +跋涉，我们面临许多挑战，但从未放弃。
We have a special connection with the mountains, especially with trekking 和 mountaineering. 的Himalayas is a South Korean drama based on true events. Renowned mountaineer Um Hong-gil set out on a mission to Everest to retrieve the frozen corpse of few mountaineers who lay trapped in the mountains. This mission where there are no rewards or recognition turns out to be one of his most challenging. While the film is Korean, I enjoyed watching it with the subtitles. A survival movie on the Himalayas is always a fascinating watch, no matter what 和 it always reminds us of our trekking days.
的“Arctic” is a nail-biting tale of a pilot named Overgard played 通过 Mads Mikkelsen who is stranded in the 北极 after a plane crash. He learns to survive 通过 making a cabin out of the rubble 和 also manages to catch fishes for food. A rescue chopper does come to take him out, but instead of rescuing him, the chopper itself crashes. 的pilot dies 和 the co-pilot barely survives to make Overgard’s life more difficult in the situation. However, he decides to take care of his new guest 和 finally, he decides to trudge along with his semi-comatose companion to the nearest outpost. 北极 is a lovely tale of humanity 和 survival. This is a must-see if you are fond of survival movies.
