The Eastern Himalaya—land of Gods, of ancient mountain kingdoms, of icy peaks and alpine meadows—is like no other place on Earth. The life and landscapes of the region are as diverse, spectacular and fragile as the mountains themselves. Even today, these mountains hold many mysteries: unnamed species, primeval cultures and the promise of magical cures to heal all of humanity.

Himalaya—Mountains of Life takes us on a journey of biocultural discovery from the great canyon of Yarlung Tsangpo and the Siang Gorge in the east to the Kali Gandaki Gorge in the west. Along the way, Himalaya demonstrates in breathtaking imagery and words, why the preservation of this heritage is so important—not just for us, but for the future of all life on Earth.

“From the plains of the Brahmaputra River, the home of the Great Indian Rhinoceros, up through the evergreen and coniferous forests to the alpine meadows, and finally to the sublime peaks and glaciers… Sandesh Kadur and Kamal Bawa have with this book made a heart-felt and major contribution to our knowledge of the region." George Schaller - Panthera and Wildlife Conservation Society

"Through the combination of visual and textual material, readers will be able to understand the richness of Eastern Himalayan life and the importance of conserving it—both for its own sake and because it collectively forms the basis for continued human existence." Peter Raven - Missouri Botanical Garden
