Summary
Weares finely rendered story of his five-month trek from the sacred source of the Ganges through the Kullu Valley, Zanskar and Ladakh to his houseboat in Kashmir is remarkably entertaining. The people he meets and travels with are fully-fledged characters that the reader comes to know and care about while the Himalaya, captured in all their variety, cast their spell. It is as if the act of walking allows the author to fully understand all the nuances spiritual, environmental, social and political of this inspiring region. A Long Walk in the Himalaya is a book to savour, a book that the reader will return to again and again
