Exploring Cradle Earth. The splendor of Mount Everest, captured by William Thompson in unique aerial photographs, epitomizes the human urge to view the unknown.

The Mighty Himalaya: A Fragile Heritage. Geographer Barry C. Bishop, who scaled Mount Everest a quarter of a century ago, describes today’s battle between conservationists and commercial interests in Asia’s loftiest mountain system.

Heavy Hands on the Land. The cursh of tourists in the Himalayan range and the needs of the local Tibetan and Nepalese populations take a serious toll, writes Larry Kohl. Photographs by William Thompson and Galen Rowell.
