1 in stock


Bibhutibhushan Bandopadhyay’s classic Bengali novel Chander Pahar paints a portrait of Africa that is hauntingly beautiful and terrifying at the same time. This adaptation brings Bandopadhyay’s vivid descriptions of the vast continent to life, while keeping the essence of the original story untouched.

Join Shankar and his friend Alvarez as they make their way through the rugged wilderness of pre–First World War Africa and encounter wild beasts, lost tribes, labyrinthine trails, raging volcanoes and mythical monsters that seem all too real, in search of the fabled diamond mines of Richtersveld, the mountain of the moon.

A powerful tale of wanderlust and adventure, Moon Mountain is all about giving wings to your dreams.
