Asian Alpine E-News 4th issue is now on Website


The Asian Alpine E-News Issue No. 4 is now on its Web site. 


The latest issue highlights articles, with many photos and charts, about climbing and exploration in the Indian Himalaya.

It also contains a contribution by Toshio Yoshida on “New species of blue poppies from Bhutan” and other articles and photos.

The Asian Alpine E-News Web site in English was launched in April 2016 by Tamotsu (Tom) Nakamura, a longtime Japanese Alpine Club member, who serves as the editor. He is known for his exploration and researches in the Himalaya. The inaugural E-News was issued in May last year.

The E-News contains news, reports and features in English about pioneering expeditions, notable ascents, journeys and field researches, as well as about mountain people and cultures mainly in Asia.

The next issue is scheduled for late March.
