Mountaineering as an adventurous hobby
What if I told you that Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tensing were probably not the first of the people to climb the Everest? There have been new things coming in light about the tallest peaks in the world and their expeditions. Many people believe that they belong to the mountains; many others look at them as a place to have a perfect hiatus and then there are always some with an adventurous air about them who look at mountains as a challenge. Some people also seek to understand the mountains and how they came into existence. No matter what category from the above you belong to, if you want to know more about the mountains, their history, their geography and how they actually are, just an opinion about them is not enough. This is where books on climbing and mountaineering come in the picture. Books that talk about mountains help you to get an idea about them and determine everything from since how may million years has the mountain been standing tall to what kind of equipment would you need in order to conquer it.
Wide range of Mountaineering and Climbing books at Amazon
These books cover a lot of aspects of mountaineering and bring in light some very essential information about it. The Mount Everest which has since long fascinated millions from around the globe and attracted many as well to actually come and conquer it has been talked about by Reinhold Messner in his book ‘Everest: Expedition to the Ultimate’. It is now believed that perhaps Sir Edmund Hillary wasn’t the first person to conquer the Everest because an Englishman named George Herbert Leigh Mallory reached its peak before him but died on his way back. The proof to this was a photograph on the top the Everest. You can read all about it in the book ‘In to the Silence: The Great War, Mallory and the Conquest of Everest’ by Wade Davis. For others who are looking for genuine tips while climbing mountains, altitude illness, prevention and treatment (Mountaineers’ Outdoor Expert) by Stephen Bezruchka M.D. is an excellent book about how to keep yourself from falling sick at the high altitudes and take precaution against frost bites as well as glares. ‘No Shortcuts to the Top: Climbing the World’s Highest Peaks’ is a tale of endurance and persistence that will inspire anyone with the mountaineer’s genes.
