Detailed Product Description
China, 1993, 1st edition. 223 pp, hundreds of color and b/w photos, many maps. In Chinese and English. Hardcover. Dust jacket, Fine. Like New.

If you are planning a mountaineering trip to the Tibet side Everest, K2, Shishapangma or Cho Oyu from the north, or any other Tibetan or Chinese peak, this guide is essential. 

In west China lies the Himalaya, Karakoram, Kun Lun, Pamirs and the Tibetan Plateau, the latter being called 'Roof of the World'. Many famous alpine peaks in the world cluster here.
 
Nine of the fourteen high peaks of 8000 meters above sea level stand in China, not to mention the lesser ones of 7000 meters and 6000 meters in height. There are Qomolongma Feng 8848 meters the highest peak in the world, and Qogir Feng (K2), the second highest. Thus west China for many years has been the focus of alpinists' attention all over the world.

A Guide to Mountaineering in China is right for the purpose to offer valuable reference to mountaineering throughout the world. It includes the forty-two most famous and representative peaks in China and gives us a fairly detailed account of their geological geographical and climatic features. Mountain climbing records and the routes to the mountains etc. In addition exquisite photos and maps make the book more detailed and accurate and the information more reliable.

Mountain climbing is a sport of the brave and the magnificent feat of man's challenge both to nature and to themselves. In today's highly civilized world it proves to be a way for people to have friendly exchange with each other and to know each other. The desire to make China better-known to the world and more prominent has encouraged us to publish A Guide to Mountaineering in China. We sincerely hope that publishing the book will play an active part in the development of world's mountaineering activities.

As it is the first time for us to compile and publish such a book in China and due to limited material and conditions. There may be defects and mistakes in the book. Now we earnestly request the reader and all experts concerned to oblige us with your valuable comments.
