With Michael Palin, The Dalai Lama. This 2004 BBC television series records comedian and travel presenter Michael Palin's six-month trip across the Himalaya mountain range, covering an amazingly diverse range of cultures and environments in various countries.

Michael Palin has yet to grow tired of tromping around the planet on behalf of the BBC-or so he says in a special, pre-departure introduction to his always gratifying, sometimes thrilling Michael Palin: Himalaya. He makes a point of acknowledging that he is, and feels, considerably older than during the making of his first, exotic travelogue, 1989's Around the World In 80 Days with Michael Palin. Palin has made three other globe-tripping series between Around the World and Himalaya. Michael Palin breathes new life into stale travelogues, he is so friendly that he attracts wonderful people. Himalaya starts out rather dull, maybe it's the country - there are no women in the society but by the end of the tour there are plenty of women in sight and in the interviews. By the second episode I was caught up in the beautiful landscape and the interesting cultures.
Himalaya with Michael Palin is a 2004 BBC television series presented by comedian and travel presenter Michael Palin. It records his six-month trip around the Himalaya mountain range area. The trip covered only 4,800 km (3,000 miles) horizontally, but involved a lot of vertical travelling, including several treks into the mountains. The highest point attained by Michael Palin was Everest Base Camp at 5,300 metres (17,500 feet). A book by the same name written by Palin was published to accompany the series

Covering 1800 miles, from Afghanistan to the China, the Himalaya is the highest mountain range in the world encompassing the top 14 tallest mountains in the world and some 30 peaks higher than 25,000 feet. Palin and his crew delve into the peaks of K2 and Everest, the mysteries of Lhasa, Nagaland, Nepal, Kashmir, Tibet as well as the fringes of the range in Afghanistan and the Khyber Pass, wandering pell-mell in a 3,000 mile journey that took them the better part of 6 months.
Sahara is the book that Michael Palin wrote to accompany the BBC television documentary series Sahara with Michael Palin. This book, like the other books that Palin wrote following each of his seven trips for the BBC, consists both of his text and of many photographs to illustrate the trip. All of the pictures in this book were taken by Basil Pao, the stills photographer who was part of the team who did the trip (Basil Pao also produced a book, Inside Sahara, containing many more of his pictures).
Michael Palin's travel books have repeatedly topped the bestseller lists. Michael Palin tackles the full length of the Himalaya in this terrific number one bestseller. ISBN13: 9780753819906. Release Date: June 2005.
