Reflections of an explorer of Kanchenjunga

Author: Paulo Coelho

By Paulo Coelho

By an explorer of mount Kanchenjunga:

“I climbed the highest mountain in my land, and could see the whole world around it. While I was there, I could see more that I can put into words, and understood more than I can express.

“If, however, I were to better define what those moments high up on Kanchenjunga really meant, I would say: seen from high up, all things – rivers, trees, snow, grass – seem as one, and my heart was filled with joy, because I was part of everything. When I understood this, even alone on the top of a mountain, I understood that I was close to all things on this Earth.”
