'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 TimesLevison 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.

Reviews

Adventurer 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 * Wood's USP is that, unlike a great many pretenders, he is the real deal: a former paratrooper, a major in the army reserves and as hard as nails. * Telegraph * In the macho, adrenaline-fuelled arena of TV adventurers, Levison Wood is that rare beast: the real deal. * Radio Times * 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 *
