How to Climb Everest, Hardback Book

How to Climb Everest Hardback

Part of the Little Ways to Live a Big Life series

Hardback

Description

What does it take to climb the world's highest mountain?

This delightful short book reveals everything you need to know about climbing Mount Everest - and who better to tell you than Kami Rita Sherpa, a Nepali guide who holds the record for most ascents to the summit of this extraordinary mountain.

In May 2019 he scaled the mountain for the 24th time.

From practical considerations to mental preparation, Kami Rita Sherpa leans on years of experience to disclose his secrets.

He tells you what to pack, how to train, how to embrace pressure, how to persevere when exhaustion threatens to take over you, how to deal with panic, how to know when to stop and how to cope with defeat.

Drawing on observations he's made from watching people fall apart, he delves into the human psyche to reveal what it takes to climb Earth's highest mountain. Along the way, he offers moments of spiritual wisdom, and explains why sherpas always pay homage to the mountain deity through the Purja ceremony.

You will find out how to listen to what the mountains are saying, and how to appreciate the silence in this age of noise.
