    One thought on “Trekking in the Nepal Himalaya”

    1. This guide was invaluable while trekking the Annapurna trail by ourselves. We ran into a few entries that were outdated (e.g. lodges that had closed), but along with the map we bought in Pokhara (which was also not as accurate as we would have liked!), the Lonely Planet trail and village descriptions were greatly helpful in choosing our trail and planning our stops along the way. Also good to have since it let us know where the crowds would be so that we could stagger our stops and not always be [...]

    2. As usual with the Lonely Planet series I found it to be very helpful. It's the first time for me doing a trek (anywhere) so alot of the basic information was useful. There is a new edition now which might be more relevant as I understand things are developing quite quickly in terms of this side of Nepal.

    3. This book clearly said about the route and villages that you will see in Himalaya. There are many routes which you can choose on your own. But mainly devided by two : Annapurna and Everest. The book also give details thing that you need to prepare before trekking. About food, drink, and health. It contains quite good map, but I recommended to have a good map from NG

    4. I've been borrowing a number of Lonely Planet books and wondering what all the hype is about. THIS is what it's about. If you're an experienced trekker, you probably can find all the errors and omissions. As someone planning a first trip to Nepal, this is exactly what I needed. I browsed the book quickly to get a sense of what it contained then I went back and read it cover to cover. Now I'm making careful notes from the health and safety section. Clear descriptions of infectious diseases, diarr [...]

    5. Very good, if a little out of date. There is now internet in several villages (Chame - RS15/min, Manang - RS25/min, Thorung Phedi - unknown price). Also, make sure to bring along a laminated trekking map instead of this entire book. It's kind of heavy.

    6. It is an excellent resource for building a day-by-day trek plan, complete with where to stay, how much it will cost, where to eat, what day trips to do, what sights to visit, which vistas you will see and which permits to buy.

    7. Well organized and well written with a wealth if detail about travel to Nepal, trekking routes, equipment, local customs. Impressed with detail on individual lodges in each village. Well done maps for major trekking routes.

    8. Very helpful. Pretty spot on for trail descriptions. The descriptions of Gosainkund to Sundarijal in the Lantang weren't as good though
