STOP PRESS! With the impact of COVID-19 around the world, many people are in need of help more than ever. Added to that, the catastrophic explosion in Beirut has destroyed so many lives and homes. Please see the dropdown menu on Helping the People if you're able to help.

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 Himalayan 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, Chad 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: Himalayan 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.
