An inspirational larger format book providing an overview of 20 memorable treks in the Himalaya. A stunning collection of all the best trekking ideas throughout the Himalayan range, they include such well-known classics as the treks to Everest, K2 and Kangchenjunga base camps, and the Annapurna and Manaslu Circuits. The ultra-long Lunana Snowman Trek and a kora around sacred Mount Kailash in Tibet are also included. There are epic glacier treks like that to Pakistan’s Snow Lake; following in the footsteps of Shipton and Tilman towards Nanda Devi, and the approach to Gangkar Punsum – the world’s highest unclimbed peak located in remote Bhutan.
Unlike a conventional guidebook, detailed route descriptions are not included; the book is, however, an excellent planning resource for those who wish to venture into the Himalayas. It looks at each route in turn and provides a snapshot of what makes the trek special, helping you choose the best routes to walk. Perfect either for planning, or for the armchair explorer.
