Guardian of the Eastern Himalaya
Photography by Tim Hauf; Text by Conger Beasley Jr.
Photographer Hauf and writer Beasley blend their superb talents to capture the legendary mountain and the remote terrain of the eastern Himalaya. Hauf presents his astounding photos of the face and texture of the mountain, while Beasley provides insightful text showcasing the people, history, flora and fauna of this spectacular region.

book, Solu-Khumbu: The Trek to Everest.
