I enjoyed this book once I found the website to follow along. His descriptions are so good - but the pictures and maps on the website really help to follow along.

Beautifully told audiobook by Michael Palin of Monty Python fame. Micheal continues his series of travel logs telling of the history, the people and culture of the Himalayas, his experiences as he travels around, the difficulties he encounters and descibes perfectly the beauty so few people have seen in the West.
This would also be perfect to go along with the DVD version as well. I would also recommend his other series of audiobooks such as his first, Around The World in 80 Days and Pole to Pole, if available.

You don't need to say alot more than, Palin, Travel, Genius. Once again Michael Palin makes you feel like you are travelling with him.

Where does Himalaya rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I have only ever listened to this one
What was most disappointing about Michael Palin’s story?
It was a bit rushed. One was left wanting more detail on just about everything ( Geography, history, current conflicts, landscapes). I also did not like the fact that each day was announced numerically - it interrupted the narrative - especially as some days he didn't have much to say.
What about Michael Palin’s performance did you like?
He reads very well but trying to take on different accents didn't always work.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No. We used it for traveling a long distance and divided it into two sessions.
Any additional comments?
It was an enjoyable experience. Thank you.
