Para Luca Matthews su mayor pasion es escalar los picos de montanas mas altos, y cuando descubre un pico virgen en el Himalaya que ni siquiera existe en ningun mapa, decide ser el primero en escalarlo. Junto con su companero de escalada, Bill Taylor, se pusieron en marcha en una region del Tibet muy restringida por los chinos. Pero un accidente lo pone a uno de su equipo en peligro de muerte y se deja a una nina tibetana local para llevarlos a Geltang, un monasterio que se ha ocultado del mundo exterior desde la Revolucion Cultural China, cuando fueron saqueados la mayor parte de los monasterios y quemados. Pronto, como la policia secreta china se enteran de ellos, Luca y Bill se ven envueltos en una lucha secular, no por sus vidas, sino para proteger el secreto que se esconde en Geltang y el legado del Tibet en si.

to Luca Matthews the dangers of the high mountain peaks are the air upon which he thrives. In the ruthless pursuit of his goals he would sacrifice anything - even another climber's life. His friends and family know and fear it. So when he sights a virgin peak in the Himalayas that exists on no map, no one is surprised when he becomes obsessed with being the first to scale it. Together with his climbing partner, Bill Taylor, they set off into a region of Tibet highly restricted by the Chinese. But a freak accident puts one of their team in mortal danger and it is left to a local Tibetan girl to lead them to Geltang, a monastery that has been hidden from the outside world since the Chinese Cultural Revolution, when most of the monasteries were pillaged and burned. Soon, as the Chinese secret police get wind of them, Luca and Bill find themselves embroiled in an age-old struggle, not for their lives but to protect the precious secret that Geltang hides and the legacy of Tibet itself.
