Nanda Devi is the highest mountain in India and was the highest mountain summited for twenty years before Edmund Hilary climbed Mt. Everest. This is a thrilling and often heart stopping account of the attempts and many failures to climb this sacred mountain. Written by ‘Bill’ Tilman, one of the most famous names in mountaineering and all round adventurer extraordinaire, this book is a must for anyone with a love of adventure and the great outdoors. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
