Good book and a nice look into Asian culture. The author makes a six-month along the Himalayas from Afghanistan to Bhutan. Worth the read for armchair explorers and those interested in that region.

What does an adventurous travel writer do after walking the length of the Nile? Take a 1,700 mile trek through the Himalayas! Recounting his trip from Afghanistan (where a helicopter dropped him off in a remote area) to Pakistan, India, Nepal, and Bhutan, British explorer and travel writer Levison Wood discusses the history, religions, and cultures of the people he encounters, including His Holiness, the Dalai Lama. There were adventurous moments, too, of course, involving landslides, monsoons, tigers, and crocodiles. Where will Wood go next? It's recently been announced he'll say "hola" to Central America, walking from northeastern Mexico to Colombia.
