About this book

Of all the great Himalayan peaks, the Annapurnas are unique. This vast massif of soaring spires and high ridges is about 60km in length, with many peaks over 7000m. It has long cast its spell on trekkers from all over the world.

Packed with extensive practical information, this is the essential guidebook to exploring the ever-expanding horizons of the Annapurna trekking region – the most popular trekking area in Nepal and for many years a draw for mountain addicts. The guide's 14 diverse treks update familiar old favourites, such as the classic Annapurna Circuit and Annapurna Sanctuary, as well as introduce exciting new routes.

The 14 treks described in Cicerone Guides: Annapurna lead around tranquil lakes, through rich farming country, forests of bamboo and rhododendron, cool rainforest, silent alpine glades and rugged, high mountain desert to explore this magical region.

Media reviews

Reviews of previous editions:

"If the Annapurnas present an enticing goal, there can be no better source of information than Kev Reynolds's Annapurna – A Trekker's Guide. [...] Each trek has been thoroughly researched and lovingly described [...] bringing back fond memories and recalling detail I found impossible to fault."
– Lindsay Griffin, High

"This is a good guide book covering all the essentials and a bit more which still manages to be almost pocket sized."
– Julie Carter, The Pinnacle Club Journal

"Kev describes the beauty and fascination which make this region such an attractive destination for the trekker. If a reader were in any doubt about undertaking a trek in the area, the author's enthusiasm for the region and its people clearly extols its merits, but if this were not enough the excellent photographs will clinch the deal. [...] While the guide gives clear specific directions, its principal strength lies in the additional information it provides the visitor about the history of the area, the activities of the local people, their religion, ecology, the history of exploration and mountaineering, and much more. [...] This is an excellent book. If you are going to the area, buy it. If you are just researching a trip, buy the book and reserve the tickets, it will get you hooked."
– Stewart MacKenzie, The Leader
