Description

Written by expert trekkers, those who have been there and come back, every crag, peak, stream and inch familiar to them, with brilliant photographs by Hashmat Singh, the book is a stimulating and certain invitation to trekkers.

Trekking in the Himalaya takes you away from the madding crowd to the white and silent core of the Himalaya. It lures you to Ladakh, Himachal, Garhwal and Kumaon; Bhutan, Sikkim and Darjeeling; and Nepal – five regions that make up a trekker’s paradise. There are nineteen mesmerizing treks to choose from- jungle-riddled, summit strewn, flower-rich, color-mad passages of thrill and adventure.

Comprehensive and informative, the book traces each trek, starting with invaluable data on travel preparations and emergencies. A well-planned out day-to-day itinerary along with suggested short walks and restful campsites is complemented by a map outlining the trial, and earmarking rest houses and night halts. There is even a trekking guide that prepares you for the trek.
