Twenty-one days in the Himalayas (eBook)
by tim easton (Author)
- 156 Pages
This story is of a twenty-one day trek into some of the most extraordinary mountainous terrain on the planet. The author chose to do the trek in December 2017 to avoid the tens of thousands of visitors this part of the world can receive in warmer months. With mountains soaring over 8,000 metres, and a frozen lake that is the largest in the world for its almost 5,000 metre altitude, it is easy to see why people are drawn to this place.
However, it is not just this beautiful and still wild country that entices so many – but also the Nepalese people, who for over five thousand years have lived and thrived in this land known as Nepal and the Himalayas. Here the author spent all of the twenty-one days covered in this book, then another nine days in Kathmandu, which is indeed one of the most interesting cities the world over.
So dear reader – be prepared for an adventure. Even with the bumps that come with travel, nothing can take away from the sheer grandeur and beauty that are the Himalayan mountains, which continue to gain elevation every year due to the natural forces of the Earth’s tectonic plates.
