In 2012 I followed the Great Himalaya Trail; a network of existing treks and trails which together form one of the longest and highest trails in the world.
Walking in the shadow of eight of the world’s highest peaks, I passed through the jungle-like forests in Eastern Nepal and the arid high mountain deserts in the West of the country, where I visited some of the most remote communities on earth, Along my way, there were two passes over 6,000 m and sixteen between 5,000 and 6,000 m; those below I stopped counting after a while.
My lecture, however, is not about adventure in a fantastic landscape only; it is also about people who still have to fight for survival.
