Levison Wood - Walking The Nile / Walking the Himalayas / Walking the Americas (4 Discs) (DVD)
This collection sees explorer Levison Wood undertake three major walks in three of the Earth's harshest environments; along the Nile, the length of the Himalayas and 1,700 miles along the spine of the Americas from Mexico to Columbia.
This 4-disc DVD set features all 14 episodes of Wood's adventures.
Walking the Nile sees the British explorer's expedition to walk the length of the River Nile from source to sea. His nine-month, seven million step journey takes him through jungles, savannah, deserts, cities and war zones in some of the continents's most remote and spectacular locations. Along the way, he encounters modern Africa, its people and its wild life face-to-face. The Nile remains one of the last holy grails in exploration - no one has ever completed its entire length on foot. Levison's goal is to reach the Mediterranean Sea - wherever lies in his way and wherever the Nile takes him for 4200 miles. The river pushes him to the edge of his mental and physical limits as he is forced to live off his wits and bushcraft skills.
Walking the Himalayas sees Levison push himself to his physical limits as he is forced through remote, punishing terrain and altitudes above 5000m where he suffers from a debilitating lack of oxygen. As well as battling natural obstacles, he has to tread carefully through one of the most fought-over areas of the world - walking through Afghanistan, crossing the Line of Control between Pakistan and India, navigating the disputed territory of Kashmir and making his way through Nepal as it recovers and tries to rebuild itself after the recent earthquakes.
Walking the Americas sees Levison return to Mexico, where he lived for three months and Belize - where he trained as a soldier with the British Army - before he steps into a part of the world he s never visited before and some of the most diverse, beautiful and unpredictable regions on earth. Levison's expedition takes in ancient Mayan ruins still lying unexplored in the jungles of Guatemala and Honduras, the incredible wildlife diversity in Costa Rica's cloud forests, Nicaragua's active volcanoes, the Panama Canal and the Darien Gap on a sometimes brutal journey. 'Levison Wood is a great adventurer and a wonderful storyteller' Sir Ranulph Fiennes 'Britain's best-loved adventurer... he looks like a man who will stare danger in the face and soak up a lot of pain without complaint.'
