Summary
In a journey rarely, if ever, attempted before, in 6 months of hard traveling, Michael Palin took on the full length of the Himalaya, including the Khyber Pass, the hidden valleys of the Hindu Kush, ancient cities like Peshawar and Lahore, the mighty peaks of K2, Annapurna and Everest. Facing altitudes as high as 17,500 feet, as well as some of the world's deepest gorges, Palin also passed through political flashpoints like Pakistan's remote north-west frontier and terrorist-torn Kashmir. This book, compiled from his diaries, records the pleasure and pain of an extraordinary journey.
