Michael Palin tackles the full length of the Himalaya in this terrific number one bestseller. Having risen to the challenge of seas, poles, dhows and deserts, the highest mountains in the world were a natural target for Michael Palin. In a journey rarely, if ever, attempted before, in 6 months of hard travelling Palin takes on the full length of the Himalaya including the Khyber Pass, the hidden valleys of the Hindu Kush, ancient cities like Peshawar and Lahore, the mighty peaks of K2, Annapurna and Everest, the gorges of the Yangtze, the tribal lands of the Indo-Burmese border and the vast Brahmaputra delta in Bangladesh. Facing altitudes as high as 17,500 feet as well as some of the world's deepest gorges, Palin also passed through political flashpoints like Pakistan's remote north-west frontier, terrorist-torn Kashmir and the mountains of Nagaland, only recently open to visitors.

At some 1500 miles long and 250 miles at its widest, the Himalaya range is home to the fourteen greatest mountain peaks on the planet each of which towers over 8,000 metres. Celebrated by the region's early ancient kingdoms, many of these peaks remain sacred in both the Hindu and Buddhist religions and have additionally inspired western explorers and adventurers for some 300 years. Himalaya examines the geographical origins of the region, its earliest peoples and the onward western discovery and exploration commencing with the Jesuits, progressing through myriad nineteenth century gentlemen surveyors, culminating in Edmund Hilary and Tensing Norgay's ascent of Everest in 1953 and continuing to the present day with extreme mountaineers and adventure tourists. However the book does not solely deal with the attempts to summit the majestic Everest. Its broader brief, and chronological structure, allows the inclusion of narrative and journal extracts from the equally heroic pioneering ascents of Himalayan peaks including K2 (1954), Nanga Parbat (1953), Annapurna (1950), Kangchenjunga (1955), and Lhotse (1956) as well as subsequent new frontiers, peaks, routes and mountaineering techniques. The volume includes specially commissioned pieces where legendary climbers reflect on their intrepid experiences and heroism on the highest mountains on earth. These accounts are set beside stunning commissioned cartography, historical photographs, newly shot stills of ephemera and artifacts as well as the most recent Himalayan work from some of the world's leading adventure photographers.

This guide describes twenty high-altitude treks of 2-9 days in the mountains of Tajikistan, covering the Fann Mountains, Pamirs and northern ranges, plus five day hikes near the capital, Dushanbe, and a 10-day trek in the Afghan Wakhan Corridor. As well as detailed route description and 1:100,000 mapping for each trek, there is a wealth of practical advice on transport and visas, trekking support, equipment, cultural awareness, safety and security, as well as background notes on history, flora and fauna and a Tajik-Russian-Pamiri-English glossary. The guide can be used either to plan an independent trek or to select, prepare for and enhance an organised expedition. Known as 'the Roof of the World', Tajikistan is one of the most mountainous countries on Earth, with 93% of its landmass considered mountainous territory. This is where the mighty Himalaya meet the Tian Shan, Karakoram and Hindu Kush, and a centuries-old network of trails criss-crosses the remote terrain, linking isolated villages and shepherds' camps. Although infrastructure is fragile and tourism in its infancy, this Central Asian nation presents some outstanding opportunities for the adventurous trekker. The hand-picked routes showcase Tajikistan's breathtaking landscapes of lofty snow-capped peaks, turquoise lakes and sweeping high-altitude plateaus. Trekking here is also a rich cultural experience: in addition to wild camping, many of the treks include the opportunity to experience the fascinating local culture and warm hospitality in a traditional homestay, meeting those who call this remote wilderness home. This guide will be your companion to discovering Tajikistan, a country with so much to offer and one of Central Asia's best kept secrets.

'Die bleibende Aktualität eines Pioniers im christlich-hinduistischen Dialog Der französische Benediktiner Henri Le Saux, in seiner indischen Existenz Swami Abhishiktānanda (1910–1973), ist Jahre nach seinem Tod zu einer der Leitfiguren im interreligiösen Dialog geworden. Als echter Kontemplativer lebte er ein weitgehend zurückgezogenes Leben, großteils in seiner Einsiedelei im Himalaya, obwohl er bereits zu seinen Lebzeiten, in der entscheidenden Periode während und nach dem Zweiten Vatikanischen Konzil, eine einflussreiche Rolle in der Kirche Indiens spielte. Bei aller persönlichen Bescheidenheit und Demut war Abhishiktānanda von der Gültigkeit seiner Erfahrung an der Grenze zwischen Hinduismus und Christentum überzeugt. Zu einer Zeit, als Christen den Hinduismus mit Argwohn und vielen Missverständnissen betrachteten, versuchte er, dessen spirituelle Botschaft für diese zugänglich zu machen. Sein geistliches Tagebuch legt Zeugnis ab für seine authentische Erfahrung in der Begegnung zwischen seiner ursprünglichen christlich-monastischen Tradition und der hinduistischen, vornehmlich nicht-dualistischen Spiritualität (Advaita), basierend auf den Upanishaden und dem bedeutendsten Weisen des 20. Jahrhunderts, Ramana Maharshi. Der vorliegende Band enthält eine Auswahl von Beiträgen europäischer und indischer Autoren, welche eine doppeltes Ziel verfolgen: Auf der einen Seite Swami Abhishiktānanda wieder in das Gedächtnis zu holen und seine Bedeutung anzuerkennen, auf der anderen Seite seine Relevanz in der heute vollständig veränderten geistigen Szene zu entdecken. Sie schlagen damit eine Brücke über die letzten 40 Jahre seit seinem Tod, in denen sich die Lage des interreligiösen Dialogs weiter entwickelt hat. Das Ergebnis ist erstaunlich und es zeigt sich, dass die Erfahrungen und Einsichten dieses hindu-christlichen Kontemplativen immer noch Sprengkraft besitzen. '
