Publisher's Summary

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. The Annapurna Circuit in Nepal is the most popular footpath in Asia. Its genius lies in its design. 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'. This Circuit is widely considered one of the world's great treks, and mortals from all around the world are coming to Nepal for the unique chance to 'get high'. Bill Walker ('Skywalker') struggled his way through the Annapurna Circuit in 2012. He has written this entertaining tale of his journey in this land of Sherpas, cold, altitude, and rushing water.

Hearing it made me feel like I was there.

What made the experience of listening to Getting High the most enjoyable?

It was an easy and compelling listen, held my attention, and had a quality of tolerance and appreciation for the place and people. And, the author has a great sense of humor.

What did you like best about this story?

It made the trek come alive and made me want to go and do it myself.

What about Bill Walker’s performance did you like?

His style of reading was expressive and easy to keep on listening to, and.had a nice liveliness to it.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

Great book. I would highly recommend it, especially to anyone who likes to hike!

Beware if you have weak stomach

I love Skywalkers books and hope he does the continental divide trail so I can read about it.

HOWEVER the audiobook is extremely difficult to listen to. Bill has an extremely wet mouth and you can hear copious amounts of saliva spewing and bubbling in his mouth. I just wanted to tell him to swallow or wipe his mouth. And to avoid so many words starting with P. I can't be the only one who is disturbed by this.

Awesome book to read before going to Annapurna!

I read this twice, before and after doing ABC and EBC. It really captures what it’s like trekking in the Himalayas and I can’t wait to do the Circuit next. It was great listening to it in the long walks I was taking in preparation for my own trek!
