As explorers from around the globe have attempted to discover the Himalaya, the Himalayan Club has played a pioneering role in chronicling their expeditions for posterity. The accompanying maps, from the Himalayan Journal, are a historical treasure capturing quite a lot of facets of exploration through the years. Legendary explorations like Shipton and Tilman’s route into Nanda Devi Sanctuary, Maurice Herzog’s Annapurna ascent – the first to scale an 8,000m peak – and Sir Chris Bonington’s exploring routes to Menluntse continue to arouse fascination to at the present time. The last decade or two have witnessed fascinating explorations – trails to finish the century-old quest to track the route of the mighty Brahmaputra river by Harish Kapadia, exploring the unknown Kunzang valley by Group Capt. V.K. Sashindran, ascents and twist of fate on Panch Chuli by A.V. Saunders and an ascent of Nilkanth by the west ridge by Martin Moran and lots of others. With one of the crucial routes and climbs documented here yet to be repeated, this book is a tribute to the wealthy history of exploration and a treasure trove for aficionados.
