Sherpa legend told of an enchanted valley with an invisible village, Shangri-La, that was said to be a place of great beauty. The valley became the nemesis of legendary mountaineer Edmund Hillary, who travelled there to climb 7,129m Baruntse, but succumbed to the irresistible draw of Makalu, the great black mountain which towered over the valley. Makalu vanquished him, and he was never the same climber again. Fifty years later, Mark Horrell embarked on a trek up the Barun Valley to follow in Hillary’s footsteps – at least some of the way. He hoped to climb Baruntse, but when he arrived, he learned of a terrible accident that had shaken the climbing community and would threaten his plans. Yet one of the virtues of climbing in the Himalayas is that just reaching a mountain can be a great adventure. Join Mark on an entertaining journey across jungle, moorland, hill and valley to the frozen heights of the Barun Plateau.

How did climbers from the world's flattest, hottest continent become world-class Himalayan mountaineers, the equal of any elite mountaineer from countries with long climbing traditions and home ranges that make Australia's highest summit look like a suburban hill? This book tells the story of Australian mountaineering in the great ranges of Asia, from the exploits of a brash, young colonial with an early British Himalayan expedition in the 1920s to the coming of age of Australian climbers in the 1980s. The story goes beyond the two remarkable Australian ascents of Mt Everest in 1984 and 1988 to explore the exploits of Australian climbers in the far-flung corners of the high Himalaya. Above all, the book presents a glimpse into the lives - the successes, failures, tragedies, motivations, fears, conflicts, humor, and compassion - themselves to the ultimate limits of survival in the most spectacular and demanding mountain arena of all.

»Die Besteigung des Rum Doodle« ist eine grandiose Bergsteigersatire aus den 50er Jahren, die niemals auf Deutsch erschienen ist. Das Buch genießt Kultstatus in Alpinistenkreisen und führte sogar dazu, dass ein ganzer Berg in der Antarktis »Rum Doodle« getauft wurde. Erzählt wird die abenteuerliche Geschichte einer Expedition, bei der so gut wie alles schief geht. Der Expeditionsleiter, ein ehrgeiziger und nicht zu beirrender Herr, ist mit der Zusammenstellung eines geeigneten Teams beauftragt. Er rekrutiert sieben sehr britische Gentlemen. Doch bald zeigt sich, dass keiner von ihnen seiner Aufgabe gewachsen ist. Der Navigator findet trotz Einsatz eines Kompasses nicht zum Ort der Vorbesprechung in London. Der Arzt ist ständig krank. Der Hauptkletterer leidet an Antriebslosigkeit. Die Qualitäten des Kochs spotten jeder Beschreibung. Der Übersetzer versteht die Sprache der Einheimischen nicht, und es werden 30 000 statt 3 000 Träger engagiert. Ein Missgeschick jagt das nächste und am Ende, na klar, haben sie den falschen Berg bestiegen.

Book Description: Everest forbidding, exhilarating, unconquerable. All courageous attempts by man to reach its summit by heading up the northern side from Tibet had failed. The southern approach through Nepal had never before been climbed, due to its impossibly steep ice-covered slopes and the country's policies. But in 1951 Edmund Hillary joined an expedition to find a new route up Everest from the south, which led to a new chapter in mountaineering history. The climbers' determination, endurance and battle against the elements culminated with their famous climb in 1953 as they finally reached the summit of this formidable mountain. This is Hillary's own account of the treacherous and breathtaking journeys.
