Interesting bit of heritage from Dehradoon
I had no clue that I will bump into a bit of Dehradoon heritage when I started researching about an old trek to Nag Tibba near Mussorie hills. The same Nag Tibba trek was taken by one Heinrich Harrer. Does ” Seven Years in Tibet ( 1952)” rings a bell ? I’m sure it does if you love Brad Pitt. Our man Harrer wrote it in 1952 and Dehradoon played a part in it.
Harrer wore many hats. He was a famous mountaineer as well . He was part of the 4 man team that made first ever ascent of the north face of Eiger Mountain in 1938 in Switzerland. That made him the first person to climb Eiger.
