When town-dwellers meet the mountains, stories manifest themselves. Of narrow escapes from remote valleys, encounters with the wild, treks across snow-covered passes and flower-filled meadows, blended with the kindness of locals and their food, culture and festivals. The actual stories within the book try to make only one point — exploration is for everybody.
