STOP PRESS! With the impact of COVID-19 around the world, many people are in need of help more than ever. Please see the dropdown menu on Helping the People if you're able to help. We've also helped bring to the page the life story of Dr Kailash Sah, the first paediatric oncologist in Nepal, in paperback, hardback and Kindle: Tough Medicine. For something completely different, you can now read my father's diaries of the Second World War, which he started writing over 82 years ago, as an 11-year-old boy in North Wales: Dad's War Vol I and Dad's War Vol II, as well as a special commerorative hardback edition Dad's War Vols I & II. Our latest adventure in 2022 is a guide to the artists of Nepal: Living Art of Kathmandu: A Shangri-La of Eclectic Artists

Expedition World is a specialist company dedicated to travel and travellers, especially in mountains and deserts. Our most recent project is the Himalayan Travel Guides series of Nepalese trekking guidebooks, published by Map House in Kathmandu, and also available on Amazon and Kindle. See above links to read more and purchase books from Amazon/Kindle.  For details of our Annapurna trekking guidebook, published by Cicerone, see Annapurna, and our new Karakoram trekking guidebook: Karakoram - K2 Concordia

We've also produced a new selection of picture books to entice and inspire in equal measure... or simply dream...

With such a diverse world, there is no limit to the places we find captivating. This site is primarily about information and experiences, but we do occasionally organise trips to places away from the mainstream. In the past we have taken groups to Algeria and Niger in the Sahara, and ran an 'oldies' overland trip from the UK to Kathmandu. See our Africa & Middle East pages for Africa Overland, Saudi Arabia, Iraqi KurdistanChad and Lebanon

For a different overland route back from Africa to the UK, why not drive across Tibet? Doing this in our 30-year-old Land Rover was one of our most exciting adventures yet! 

See also Cicerone, Bradt, Stanfords, Daunt books and in Nepal: Map House, Pilgrims

On this site look for other books we have written and any one-off expeditions planned. During the European summer you'll find us in the Alps on the Tour du Mont Blanc.  

Our autobiography In Search of the Green-Eyed Yellow Idol is available in black & whitecolour and Kindle.
