A wonderful collection of reproductions. Some lengthy text as well. Probably very scholarly but I bought the book for the pictures. JJ

Lots and lots of information on every aspect of the area. Some quaint english to sort out but a very thorough guide to a little visited region.


Kangchenjunga: Guardian of the Eastern Himalaya
Kangchenjunga: Guardian of the Eastern Himalaya
by Tim Hauf
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars A challenging approach to a great mountain vista., 20 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A colourful reminder of trekking in eastern Nepal. Though some of the photos reflect a route linked to an Indian rather than Nepalese approach. The terrain is demanding underfoot though fabulous overhead!

5.0 out of 5 stars A book full of fascinating people and places, 4 Mar. 2011
This is a book with tiny detail and sweeping views. It for those who love India and Nepal and for those who long to get there. It is a story of love and loss but always with the hope that good things will return. The dog will be found, the cook return and find all is well, the boyfriend knows where happiness lies and the house in the hills settles back to a comfy future. You wish everyone well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Text and pictures to impress, 6 Nov. 2009
A wonderful collection of pictures and text to impress those who have travelled to the mountains and those who take an interest in this fascinating world from afar. A book you can read cover to cover. This is a disappearing world that is shown in all its simplicity by great photos. In its text you learn of the philosophy that governs the lives of pilgrims and communities in the mountain kingdoms of the Himalayas.
