Garry Weare’s – A Long Walk in the Himalayas
Garry Weare decided to take a leisurely walk in the Himalayas and over three months and 1,200 km saw some of the most isolated and desolate parts of this impressive mountain chain. Gary then published his diary as “A Long Walk in the Himalaya: A Trek from the Ganges to Kashmir”
Garry writes in a quirky and very appealing style which is quite different from some of the other older and classic expedition texts from the region. The story is anecdotal with numerous warm comments about his travels. He has an obvious and deep love of trekking and the Himalayas. This is a fantastic read particularly if you are preparing to head into the hills.

What however is missing are some good maps and Google Earth integration. We have re-created Garry’s travels and you can see just where he went on Earth Google. View the Route_ in Earth Google
