Jim Wilson has been climbing since 1978 and considers himself an experienced mountaineer but not an expert. He has enough skills to climb at high altitude but the stories are more about the journey and not the technical aspects. From being a Munro climber in Scotland he went on to climb a 20,000-foot mountain in Nepal – the trip of a lifetime! But he kept going back!

His first book is a fairly laid-back account of trekking and climbing big mountains including being on the highest of them all, Everest. It is a great introduction to all the highs and lows of trekking in some remote areas, often humorous but sometimes facing really difficult situations.

This is the story of four adventures in Nepal and Tibet.

Jim’s second publication is a very personal account of a traverse across one of Nepal’s last remaining wildernesses and undiscovered Tibetan regions. This area was only opened to trekking in 2015 and Jim’s group were the first to complete the whole traverse.

This is the story of that first exploratory trek and the trials and tribulations of a journey through remote valleys and high mountain passes.
