Preface

“To do justice to the landscapes and peoples of the highest mountains in the world requires a sensitivity and skill not given to all of us.  Andreas Stimm and Yuyutsu R. D. Sharma have succeeded, in this trilogy of photographs and poems, in bringing to life an extraordinary region in all its striking beauty and natural harmony. The unique combination of their photographic and poetic skills succeeds in laying bare the very soul of the Himalayas, the smiling warmth of its inhabitants and its dramatically beautiful peaks and valleys. Each page transports you to a magical and timeless world which, alas, is condemned slowly to disappear as modernization, new roads, and environmental degradation  combine to depopulate these remote areas.”
