WALKING THE HIMALAYAS

Synopsis

Following in in the footsteps of the great explorers, this is Levison Wood's enthralling account of crossing the Himalayas on foot. His journey of discovery along the path of the ancient trade route of the Silk Road to the forgotten kingdom of Bhutan led him beyond the safety of the tourist trail. He encounters natural disasters, extremists, nomadic goat herders, and the Dalai Lama in his 1,700-mile trek across the roof of the world.
