Trekking in the Himalaya

20 Memorable Expeditions

The Himalaya have always fed the dreams and called to those who love wild places. Stretching from Pakistan through Northern India, Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan, this book includes 20 descriptions of the best, and most spectacular treks in the range. From glaciers to jungle, snow-swept passes to plunging valleys, remote plateaus to bustling base camps, the Himalaya offer an unparalleled wealth of landscapes and trekking opportunities.

This inspirational guide was edited by trekking specialist Kev Reynolds, and written by a team of eight experienced authors, writers and guides.
