Free Upload of ‘Getting High–the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal’ by Skywalker
Bill Walker (‘Skywalker’) will be having a two-day free upload (April 27 and 28) of his newly released outdoor adventure narrative, Getting High–The Annapurna Circuit in Nepal (2013). This is the story of his trek on Europe’s most popular footpath, the Annapurna Circuit. Walker ardently makes the case that the Annapurna Circuit is the best way for an average person like himself to experience the world’s greatest mountain range, the Himalayas. Ten of the world’s highest 14 peaks are in Nepal. The Annapurna Circuit is a trek–not a climb. Except for a few situations, the grades are not that steep. Yet the Circuit well designed enough that at various points trekkers find themselves staring closely at some of the world’s greatest peaks (Manaslu, Gangapurna, Annapurna I, II, III, and IV).
The Annapurna Circuit also features the same international cast of characters as is found on the wildly popular European pilgrimage, the Camino de Santiago. Just throw in a few more British and Israelis, and subtract some Koreans and Spanish, on Annapurna. Also, trekkers get a close-up look at the famous Nepali porters (Sherpas), who many consider the stars of the show. Ultimately though, the Annapurna Circuit is about ‘getting high’. Along with Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, it is considered one of the two best places in the world for an average person to reach truly high elevations.
The book will be available for free upload either on Amazon Kindle devices or most personal computers. Walker, whose ‘Skywalker’ hiking series have been quite popular, sincerely hopes many readers will take advantage of this one-time offer.
Bill Walker is the author of Skywalker–Close Encounters on the Appalachian Trail. He is also the author of Skywalker–Highs and Lows on the Pacific Crest Trail, as well as The Best Way–El Camino de Santiago. His newest book is Getting High–the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal.
