Freedom, honesty, generosity and humility are the values that inspired the daily life of the mountaineer Iñaki Ochoa de Olza, and they are the same that guide the foundation that bears his name, SOS Himalaya – Fundación Iñaki Ochoa de Olza. They have been working for ten years to carry out different health and educational projects in the Himalayan villages. His goal right now is to start a hospital in Makalu Valley 5 in Nepal. From the Sua publishing house, we wanted to lend a hand and asked for help from thirty prestigious Himalayers. All of them knew Iñaki Ochoa de Olza and have not hesitated to give up the copyright on the stories that, based on their experiences and feelings in the mountains, are collected in this book. <br />
Thanks to all of them for lending us their memories and their stories to build this solidarity book. Thanks to Sherpa Pasang and Mingma Dorjee Sherpa for their prologues and journalist Juan Manuel Sotillos for their work as coordinator.
And thanks to you, reader, for choosing this book, because when you buy it you are also part of this solidarity project.
