Detailed Product Description
2008. 288 pp, 100s of color photos, maps. In German. East of the Himalaya lies the mountains called Nyainqentanglha-East, Kangri Garpo and the Deep Gorge Country with more than 250 unclimbed peaks over 6000 Meters high. Nakamura recounts his 30 expeditions to to the Mountain ranges of East and SE Tibet, West Sichuan, NW Yunnan, West Qinghai and North Myanmar - Kingdon-Ward country - and has produced this wonderful history and guidebook to the many 6-7000m peaks of that area which include Minya Konka and Namcha Barhwa.
 
His superb photos show mountains, glaciers and local people, to an extent that is unique. Many Panorama maps and topographic maps give aid in understanding the geography of that mountainous area, and to give access to to still untouched peaks, or access to holy mountains. New large format Hardcover with a dust jacket.
 
This book is large and heavy, so extra postage charges will be requested for Priority Mail or International Mail.
