Adventure is what it’s all about – and no adventure comes bigger than the mighty Himalaya. That’s why we chose this image for the cover of a packed issue 161. It just has it all. It’s of Zee Monastery in the remote Spiti Valley in northern India. And it’s Shangri-La for the trio of pilots who flew there chasing personal altitude records. Here’s what’s in the magazine this issue:Paragliding in Keylong

Beyond Bir: Kubo Beno, Andrej Durana and Martin Gaborik head to Keylong on a quest to reach 7,000m
