About this book

The world's highest mountain has lured visitors from all over the world ever since its discovery. Attempting its summit is dangerous and requires special skills and experience, but the trek to its Base Camp in Nepal can be completed by well-prepared walkers of any age – safely and enjoyably. The views from the route are breath-taking, and the trek is punctuated by intriguing Buddhist monuments and monasteries. In the aftermath of the earthquakes in April/May 2015, Nepal needs trekkers more than ever.

The authors focus on the popular route from Lukla to Base Camp, and also cover the trek to the beautiful Gokyo Lakes with the challenging option to link the two valleys over the Cho La. They provide background on Sherpa culture and religion and on wildlife and geology. There's a wealth of practical information on preparation, including how to prevent and manage altitude sickness.

The guidebook contains everything you need to plan and enjoy your trek:
- details of each section showing trekking time and altitude gain/loss
- how to choose a tour operator
- background on Nepal, Sherpa culture, geology and wildlife
- nine pages of detailed mapping at 1:50,000 of all trekking routes
- lavishly illustrated, with over 90 colour photographs
- rucksack-friendly, weatherproof format
