About This Book
The Himalaya is the greatest mountain range on earth, a virtually unbroken wall of rock stretching 1800 miles from the borders of Afghanistan to southwest China. In a journey rarely, if ever attempted before, Palin takes on the full length of the Himalaya, from the Pakistan-Afghan frontier through India, Nepal, Tibet and Yunnan in China, before recrossing the mountains to Assam, Bhutan and Bangladesh.
This book, compiled from Palin's diaries, records the pleasure and pain of his most challenging journey so far and Basil Pao, the inspired photographer of Sahara, Full Circle and Pole to Pole, captures the sensational beauty of the finest mountain scenery in the world.
