When the author and her partner were offered the chance of spending five months teaching English in a remote village high in the Himalayas of Nepal, they didn't hesitate.     

The bestselling 'A Beard In Nepal' is the story of the time they spent living in the small, isolated village of Salle in the Everest region of Nepal, a village almost untouched by western civilisation.

A compulsive, page turning read, often humorous, we follow the couple from Liverpool as they struggle with the daily challenges of altitude sickness, restricted diet, and close encounters with wild tigers (Yes!).

The book describes their often comic attempts to teach English to a group of lively youngsters in a wooden hut, using just blackboard and chalk, and without the benefit of electricity, water, or toilet!

'A Beard In Nepal' recounts the couple's hair raising, chaotic journeys along some of the highest and most dangerous roads in the world, not least the road into Tibet.
