Getting High: The Annapurna Circuit in Nepal

What is the best way for the average person to authentically experience the world's greatest mountain range - the Himalayas? Fortunately, there is now a good answer.

Trekkers wind their way around and along some of the world's greatest peaks, ultimately getting near 18,000 feet, without ever having to do any 'technical climbing'.

    Any additional comments?

    Walker does a great job of giving the reader not just the high points of the journey, but also the frustrations and difficulties. I enjoyed this listen and the author's candid style. Listened to the whole thing in one day.

    "Another awesome trail adventure."

    Bill's sense of humor and delightful insight make him one of my favorite authors . He makes you feel like you're experiencing the trail yourself, but with a dear friend.
