Description

Following his trek along the length of the Nile River, explorer Levison Wood takes on his greatest challenge yet-navigating the treacherous foothills of the Himalayas, the world's highest mountain range. Praised by Bear Grylls, Levison Wood has been called "the toughest man on TV" (The Times UK). Now, following in the footsteps of the great explorers, Levison recounts the beauty and danger he found along the Silk Road route of Afghanistan, the Line of Control between Pakistan and India, the disputed territories of Kashmir, and the earthquake-ravaged lands of Nepal. Over the course of six months, Wood and his trusted guides trek 1,700 grueling miles across the roof of the world. Packed with action and emotion, Walking the Himalayas is the story of one intrepid man's travels in a world poised on the edge of tremendous change.

Professional reviews

"Intrepid world traveler Levison Wood chronicles his ambitious undertaking of hiking for six months across 1,700 miles of some of the most scenic and extreme landscapes on earth: the Himalayan region spanning Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, and Nepal. Wood's British-accented narration is evocative in his descriptions of challenging political circumstances, cross-cultural friendships and misunderstandings, and, of course, the dramatic Himalayan scenery. His portrayal of his life at home in London provides an interesting contrast to the rarefied life of extended, physically demanding trips to distant corners of the planet. Wood's narration conveys the joy and pain of the high and low points of his journey, and the listener can sense his strength and determination in his confident yet humble tone.
