The Himalayas have long captured the human imagination, weaving their way into myth, legend and adventure and playing a role in religion, festival and ritual. Within this colossal mountain range are the world’s highest peaks – there are over 100 mountains that top 7,200 metres, including the mighty Everest at 8,848 metres.
