About the Book

This book offers a fascinating inside look at the farming traditions in some of the highest mountain ranges on earth, capturing both continuity and change in mountain farming systems. These timeless images and insightful descriptions offer the reader glimpses of the lives of mountain people who have dedicated their lives to producing food for sustenance in a raw and challenging environment. Through their activities, these farmers have shaped and preserved their landscape as cultural heritage, helping to protect landscape values and the environment. 

The Swiss horticulturist and photographer Fritz Berger shares his experience from several years of working with farming communities in the Himalaya and his many visits thereafter. The book also provides and overview of the activities conducted by the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) to promote appropriate solutions for mountain farmers in the Hindu Kush Himalaya.
