Having “walked the Nile” in a previous special, adventurer and explorer Levison Wood suits up for another major excursion, this time walking the length of the Himalayas. His journey begins in Afghanistan and sees him trek across some 1,700 miles on a journey full of amazing experiences, breathtaking scenery and not a little bit of danger. Snow and ice, altitude sickness and a debilitating car crash are countered by the exquisite beauty, hidden jewels of nature and historical significance of the sites he, and we, discover.
