The Tenth Step, A 4,000 Mile Trip Across The Himalaya

World-renowned Scottish expedition leader Gerry Moffatt has spent a lifetime guiding in the Himalayas - pioneering first descents on rivers, overlanding, climbing, and exploring remote places in Nepal, India, Tibet, Pakistan and Bhutan.

Turning 50, he embarks on a solo motorcycle adventure across the length of the mighty Himalayas – from Ladakh to the eastern edge of Bhutan – to document and better understand the changes he’s witnessed over 30 years of living there. After 4,000 miles and 108 days on the road revisiting the places and people that shaped his life, Moffatt’s adventure unexpectedly continues as personal tragedy and Nepal’s devastating earthquakes upturn his world. Faced with the brutal realization that things can change in an instant, Moffatt keeps a promise to himself to return one last time to a stretch of river that almost killed him 20 years ago. There, in the crucible of one of the world’s most infamous whitewater canyons, he reminds himself of what really matters in life. Set amidst 30 years of Himalayan adventure travel history, The Tenth Step is an inspiring and very personal story of self discovery and recovery in a rapidly changing world.
