Takashi Miyahara came to Nepal in the 1960s and fell in love with the country that eventually became his spiritual home. While traveling the country, he realized that its natural beauty and cultural characteristics make it one of the world’s most attractive tourist destinations. Not one to back away from what others deem impossible, Miyahara focused on encouraging the country’s independent spirit for development and committed himself to bringing many tourism-related projects to fruition. The most well-known of these is the Hotel Everest View, which is located at an altitude of nearly 3,900 meters and commands a 360-degree view of the Himalayas. A Ray of Light in the Himalayas is an extraordinary story of how this iconic hotel came into being. Mesmerizing and inspiring in equal measure, this is a book about the realization of big dreams.
