This is the story of an incredible journey. Peter Hillary and Graeme Dingle chose to travel on foot and carrying their supplies through the toughest terrain in the world, the Himalayas. They climbed and tramped for 5,000 kilometres over a period of ten months. They stepped back into time, visiting places normally inaccessible to the outside world and with a way of life which has remained unchanged for centuries. Illustrated with over 100 color photograph, this amazing book will fascinate anyone interested in man's effort to probe unknown realms.
