Walking the Himalayas

himalayas jacketWalking the Himalayas by Levison Wood

A spellbinding journey through parts of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Indian, Nepal, and Bhutan. Life in London is getting boring, so Wood is challenged to complete another trek. His earlier book is Walking the Nile, and he was a Major in the British Parachute Regiment. Not trying to climb the Himalayan peaks, Wood plans to walk the whole length of them. Most of the journey is full of spectacular scenery and curious villagers. Accompanied by various guides, including an old friend, he also encounters the Dalai Lama, a cobra, shamans, tigers, a landslide, and honey gathering on a mountain cliff. Wood is nearly killed in a jeep crash, and his journey’s end is uncertain. Part of his trek was filmed for British television, and some of it is available online. This is an excellent choice for fans of real life adventure.
