With over fifty essays, this comprehensive volume brings together a dazzling range of voices in an unparalleled Panorama. Here you will find stories of great and thrilling ascents and descents; strange epiphanies and hallucinations; the madness of war on the ‘world’s highest battlefield’; tales of exploratory derring-do; and a mutiny up on a mountain. A seeker has an intense spiritual experience on Mount kailas, another among shamans on a Mountaintop in Nepal; and, looking for the snow leopard in Ladakh, an author finds himself. A resident of a sherpa village writes a heartfelt account of the aftermath of an avalanche which killed Porter and climbers on Everest; and residents of langtang record an oral history of the earthquake which wiped out their village. A matriarch describes her life and family in almora of a bygone time; a prisoner in Dehra Dun jail draws solace from visits by birds and small animals; and the fragrance of Lime makes a traveller night in a remote Garhwal village memorable for all time.Edited by acclaimed writers Ruskin Bond and Namibia gokhale—who have a deep and lifelong connection with the Himalayan classic anthology a revised and expanded editions the entire range, from the foothills to the highest peaks, and from its easternmost to its westernmost ends. It will keep you riveted.
