Spies in the Himalayas is a book that provides a unique and thrilling account of a joint American-Indian effort to gather intelligence on China's growing nuclear capability. The story takes place during the pre-satellite era, when conventional surveillance methods were next to impossible. To solve the intelligence dilemma, the CIA and India came up with a plan to plant a nuclear-powered sensing device on a high Himalayan peak in order to listen into China and monitor its missile launches. The book is the first to reveal the details of these daring missions and is based on the personal diaries of several of the climbers involved.

The mission was led by Mohan S. Kohli, a legendary Indian mountaineer who had conquered Everest. The climbers faced a series of hazardous climbs, weather delays, and other challenges, but despite all of this, they continued to press forward with their mission. The book also touches on the controversy that arose when the operations came to light in 1978 and the long-standing rumors about the presence of missing radioactive materials that may pose a threat to Indian rivers.

Spies in the Himalayas is an adventurous story filled with excitement, danger, and history. The book draws the reader in with its rich descriptions and breathtaking images, offering a unique perspective on the world of espionage and covert operations. With its fascinating history and thrilling accounts, this book is sure to appeal to a wide range of readers, including those who enjoyed books like Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air and fans of spy stories.
