Even though Alex has his sights on the Himalayas he still loves what the UK has to offer. They may not be as extreme and remote as the Himalayas but he feels they are still worth visiting. “I do love the UK mountains and they are definitely worth visiting. They’re on our doorstep and we can get there all the time unlike the Himalayas. You can’t compare them to the Himalayas because it’s a very different experience, there is an entirely different set of challenges and risks in the Himalayas. But the mountains and the countryside in the UK still give us freedom, challenge and fresh air in their own right.
Alex has recently written a book, you can check that out here.
