Over millennia of civilizations, the mountains have cradled life after life, teeming and irrepressible. The book comprises of over 50 fascinating accounts from a range of people – Fa-Hein, Heinrich Harrer, Amitav Ghosh, Jawaharlal Nehru, Edmund Hillary, Mark Twain, Dom Moraes, Manjushree Thapa, Namita Gokhale, and Ruskin Bond himself.
