Le se­cret du mont Asaïin

Vertical (English) - - Euronews - Em­manuel Ra­touis, Le se­cret du mont Asïin (The Se­cret of Mount Asaiin),

The nar­ra­tor and his two friends take off for K2, with the crazy goal of mak­ing the moun­tain’s first de­scent on skis.They have barely started the ap­proach when they end up be­ing kid­napped by a group of Is­lamists.This book was con­ceived be­fore 2013 and the Nanga Par­bat massacre, but re­veals in part the cur­rent re­al­ity.The trek for the three moun­taineers is not what they had orig­i­nally imag­ined. Pris­on­ers in an un­known val­ley, they share their mis­for­tune with an English ge­og­ra­pher and his In­dian guide.This en­counter will al­low them to es­cape by scal­ing a high alpine face. More im­por­tantly, the nar­ra­tor will learn an in­valu­able les­son from the old Bri­tish man and the wise In­dian. His view of the world will be trans­formed, and this change gives Em­manuel Ra­touis, who is also an ex­pert in psy­cho-ge­neal­ogy, the op­por­tu­nity to take us on a trip through the world’s Eastern re­li­gions, in­clud­ing Kab­balah and alchemy.This is one very unique book about the moun­tains.
