Man cannot conquer a mountain but on each ascent he can conquer a piece of his own fears and weaknesses.

And from above the world seems so different. From the height of the mountains we do not see fussy problems of everyday life, buzzing cars. We see only mountains and gorges, lakes buried in the clouds, mysterious dragon tones standing at the sources of pristine mountain springs, nature as it was created on the first day.
