A ground-breaking collection of stories, poems and articles about Nepal covering the length and breadth of this enchanting nation and its people.

In 2015, Sagarmatha frowned. Tectonic plates moved. A deadly earthquake devastated Nepal.

Here are explorers and mountaineers, poets and political journalists, national treasures and international celebrities. Featuring a diverse cast of writers such as Michael Palin and Jon Krakauer, Lakshmiprasad Devkota and Lil Bahadur Chettri - all hand-picked by well-known authors and scholars of Nepali literature including Samrat Upadhyay, Michael Hutt, Isabella Tree and Thomas Bell. House of Snow is the biggest, most comprehensive and most beautiful collection of writing about Nepal in print.

All profits from the sales of this book will be donated to the Pahar Trust Nepal to fund earthquake relief projects.
