High Himalaya Unknown Valleys (Fourth Edition)

Harish Kapadia
(Foreword by Sir Chris Bonington, C.B.E.)
 

ISBN     : 8173870632
Year      : 2001
Edition  : Fourth
Pages   : 336 + 29 maps + 17 sketches + 32 plates


About the Book
In the age of satellite pictures there exit many valleys in the Indian Himalaya, unseen by the human eye. These valleys, like the peaks around them, have never been trodden. Now that Everest has been climbed many times, the future of mountaineering lies in these smaller peaks, by no means easy to climb.

The book contains articles covering the author's treks and climbs in the remote valleys during the past thirty years. It contains stories of exploration of the areas in Sikkim, Kumaon, Garhwal, Kinnaur, Spiti, Lahaul, Zanskar, Ladakh and East Karakoram. There are stories of crossing passes and climbing peaks, accidents and deaths, personal injury and agony. These articles give an insight into the Himalayan areas, their history, its people and the period of development of Himalayan climbing in India during the last three decades.

For a trekker there are various suggestions in this book, for discovering different passes, many unknown valleys, and the history of travel, people, culture and nomenclature of the area. There are invaluable references to hordes of peaks, both most challenging and easy, between 6000 m and 7000 m range. Many of these peaks were climbed for the first time by the author and some of the climbs have not been repeated yet. For an explorer there are suggestions for things to be done, unexplored regions to set eyes on. And for an armchair mountaineer there are personal stories, and interaction with climbers of different nationalities. And all this is based on the experiences of the author.

With 29 maps, 17 line sketches, 32 photographs and many references, the book will be an invaluable guide to all present and future mountaineers.
