Fearghal's current project is called The Water Diaries; 5 adventurous journeys that explore the complex story of water, how it shaped the landscape, influenced the rise and fall of civilisations, and shapes geo-politics today. A source to sea descent of the Indus river is the third journey in the series and will see Fearghal travel 3,000km from its source in Tibet, through the Himalaya in Kashmir & Northern Pakistan, and across the plains of Southern Pakistan to the Arabian Sea.
