Le secret du mont Asaïin
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.
