Hot on the heels of his adventures in the Sahara, Michael Palin takes on the abode of snow and begins an extraordinary 2000-mile journey across this mighty and majestic region of Asia. Encountering extremes of wealth and poverty, altitude and freezing cold, Palin once again brings his unique wit, charm and wisdom to each episode. Along the way he encounters, amongst many others, the Dalai Lama, the Bhutanese Royal Family and the once feared headhunting tribe of the Konyak. Whilst on his travels he passes through Afghanistan, across India to the feared Death Zone near the base of Mount Everest and then onto the Bhutanese capital before arriving in the Bay of Bengal.

I loved this wonderful trek thru the Himalayas, it is interesting, funny, touching, informative. Palin's style is casual, BBC has done a great job moving it along at an enjoyable pace

Excellent set of DVD's to watch if you're into travel. Palin goes into the little places and meets the local people which makes for a kind of Lonely Planet experience in your living room.

Really entertaining to watch the journey
