No Tigers in the Hindu Kush
Philip Tranter and three friends drove a Land Rover 6,000 miles overland from Scotland to Nuristan, to explore some of the unknown Central Hindu Kush area; to attempt the second ascent of Koh-i-Krebek (20,500 feet) by a new route from the south; to ascend if possible at least one other major unclimbed mountain; and to map that hitherto unmapped terrain. In fact, as well as Krebek they climbed nine other major peaks, named another dozen, and established the existence of a most dramatic rock and ice range which they called the Rum Mountains, and christened individually after the Hebridean peaks they resembled in shape and beauty.
The story of the expedition is told with an infectious enthusiasm for the glory and challenge of these lost peaks, most of which had been hitherto quite unknown, and there is something akin to the Renaissance spirit of adventure in this exhilarating Scottish expedition of discovery to the roof of Asia.
