No Mountain Too High (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
A school trip to rural Nepal when Kumaran Rasappan was 15 years old gave him his first glimpse of Mt Everest, and launched him on a lifelong journey of adventuring that would take him to over 20 mountains, from the wilderness of Kilimanjaro to the frozen glaciers of Sichuan and ultimately to the roof of the world, Mt Everest.
Dr. Kumaran tells the story of his extraordinary journey from sheltered Singaporean to adventurer, doctor and humanitarian. Along the way, he witnessed death, experienced avalanches, survived earthquakes and made surprising discoveries about the tenacity of the human spirit, the nature of success and failure, and the beauty of different cultures. The biggest lesson that his journey has taught him is that one's success and failure cannot be defined by others. Each one of us has our own mountain to climb.
