Himalaya: Mountains of Life ready for launch!


The magnificent Himalayas have been much more than just snow capped mountains. Everything about and around Himalayas is extraordinary, be it the snow peaked mountains, the meadows or the life there. Bestowed with a rich wealth of culture, flora and fauna, this ancient mountain kingdom is like no other place on earth.

Himalaya: Mountains of Life is a sneak peak into the Himalayan life. The vibrant colours and the fragile yet spectacular mountains hold the answers to a lot of mysteries. From unknown flora and fauna species to magical cures to heal humanity and mankind, these mountains have a lot to say. The book demonstrates through astounding imagery and words, why the preservation of this legacy is so important—not just for us, but for the future of all life on Earth.

Authors Kamal Bawa and Sandesh Kadur take us on a wonderful journey of biocultural discovery. Kamal Bawa is a Distinguished Professor of Biology at the University of Massachusetts at Boston, and President of the Bangalore based Ashoka Trust for Research in Ecology and the Environment. Sandesh Kadur is an award winning wildlife photographer and film-maker with a passion for conservation and education.
