Beschreibung

Winner of the Edward Stanford Adventure Travel Book of the Year 2016.
From the best-selling author of Walking the Nile, explorer Levison Wood begins his next challenging adventure - walking the length of the Himalayas.
Levison Wood's most challenging expedition yet begins along the Silk Road route of Afghanistan and travels through five countries. Following in the footsteps of the great explorers, Levison walks the entire length of the Himalayas in an adventure of survival and endurance.
A personal story of discovery, Levison forges strong bonds with local guides, porters, mountain men, soldiers, farmers, smugglers and shepherds. By travelling on foot, and following the same footpaths that locals use, he uncovers stories that might otherwise remain hidden. Along the way he also reveals the history of the Himalayas and two millennia of exploration, and examines a continent in crisis in the 21st century.
Packed with action and emotion, more than anything Walking the Himalayas is a story of personal adventure and striving beyond the limits of convention.

Kritikerstimmen

"Bestselling author of Walking the Nile Levison Wood is "bewildered" by being called a sex symbol, as a death-defying trek through the Himalayas is set to have fans' pulses racing." (Daily Mail)
"Britain's best-loved adventurer... he looks like a man who will stare danger in the face and soak up a lot of pain without complaint." (The Times)

Title

Schöne Erzählung über eine fantastische Reiseroute, entlang der besiedelten Ränder des südlichen Himalaya. Für mich war der Sprecher etwas zu schnell, beinahe hektisch. Musste immer auf 85% hören, was nur am Tablet und nicht an der Handy App möglich ist. Situationen wirken manchmal leicht überdramatisierend, aber sehr gelungene Beschreibungen von Begnegungen mit Menschen, Kultur, und Natur. Man möchte am liebsten gleich wieder verreisen...
