Himalaya with Michael Palin

Published on 19th November 2017 by

A 2004 BBC television series which records Michael Palin’s six month trip around the Himalaya mountain range area, the trip covered just 3,000 miles horizontally but took so long to complete because it involved extensive vertical travelling. The highest point reached by Palin was the Everest base camp, 5300 meters above sea level.

We have all six episodes of the series available to watch here on Documentary Vine, navigate between them via the numbered tabs beneath the video player or by using the episode link list below. When you have finished stick around and watch more Michael Palin documentaries.
