To all those who died in the shadow of Kanchenjunga, heartfelt thanks for your immeasurable contribution to our mountains and mountain people.
To friends and relatives, those you have lost climbed the height of Everest, many times, in their resolution and determination to conserve our environment and our well being.
To our special friends, Chandra and Mingma, very many thanks for all those days in meetings and on mountain trail, in sunshine and storm.
We will not forget.
