New Delhi, July 27 (IANS) A new series “Walking the Himalayas” will show explorer, writer and photographer Levison Wood taking up an ambitious challenge to walk the length of the Himalayas.
Wood won critical acclaim for his nine-month-long trek and the first ever expedition to walk the entire length of the Nile river.
Taking the same intimate and authentic approach that made his previous series a hit, Levison takes on a new adventure across the Himalayas where he confronts snow and ice, altitude sickness and earthquake-devastated landscapes, read a statement from Discovery Channel which will air the series.
He treads carefully through one of the most fought-over areas of the world, navigating isolated Afghan valleys and the Line of Control (LoC) between Pakistani and Indian Kashmir. Along the way, he passes through some of the most remote, beautiful and perilous regions on earth — places few outsiders ever get to see.
“Walking the Himalayas” will premiere on Discovery Channel in India on August 5.
