A stunning photographic record of Michael Palin's journey through the countries bordering the Himalayan mountains, accompanying the television series Himalaya.
Himalaya: The journey features over 300 breathtaking photographs taken by Basil Pao during his adventure with Michael Palin through some of the world's most inhospitable terrain, from the deserts of Afghanistan to the sheer slopes of Mount Everest. Covering seven countries, Pao's photographs expertly capture the magical appeal of the region, and the extraordinarily diverse range of landscapes, cultures and peoples it is home to. Intimate shots of Michael and his film crew at work and relaxing 'off-air' give a fascinating insight into the making of this TV series. The photographs are preceded by an introduction written by Michael Palin.
