Getting High: The Annapurna Circuit in Nepal

Posted by on April 4, 2013 in Books by Bill Walker | 4 comments

What is the best way for the average person to see the world’s greatest mountain range–the Himalayas? Fortunately, there is now a good answer. The Annapurna Circuit in Nepal is the most popular footpath in Asia. Its genius lies in its design. Trekkers wind their way around and along some of the world’s greatest peaks, ultimately getting near 18,000 feet, without ever having to do any ‘technical climbing’. This Circuit is widely considered one of the world’s great treks, and mortals from all around the world are coming to Nepal for the unique chance to ‘get high’. Bill Walker (‘Skywalker’) struggled his way through the Annapurna Circuit in 2012. He has written this entertaining tale of his journey in this land of Sherpas, cold, altitude, and rushing water.
