The Himalaya by the Numbers

Statistical Analysis of Mountaineering in the Nepal Himalaya


This is a nirvana of mountaineering data for students of the Himalaya with climbing information written by two of the foremost experts in the world on mountaineering in this region. Data is presented and analysed based on three distinct expeditionary periods in Himalayan climbing and is a companion to The Himalayan Database (9780930410995).

What are the most dangerous peaks to climb in the Nepal Himalaya? What are the safest? When is the best time of year to climb? These and many other questions are answered in this comprehensive statistical analysis of climbing activity, ascents, and fatalities in the Nepal Himalaya. Co-written by Elizabeth Hawley, the official historian of all expeditions for the past 50 years in the Nepal Himalaya, and Richard Salisbury, a Himalayan mountaineer and retired computer analyst from the University of Michigan. Published by Vajra Publications in association with The Mountaineers Books.
