Product Description

About the Author

Siân Pritchard-Jones and Bob Gibbons met in 1983, on a trek from Kashmir to Ladakh. By then Bob had already driven an ancient Land Rover from England to Kathmandu (in 1974), and overland trucks across Asia, Africa and South America. He had also lived in Kathmandu for two years, employed as a trekking company manager. Before they met, Siân worked in computer programming and systems analysis, but was drawn to the Himalaya en route from working in New Zealand. Since they met they have been leading and organising treks in the Alps, Nepal and the Sahara, as well as driving a bus overland to Nepal. Journeys by a less ancient (only 30-year-old) Land Rover from England to South Africa provided the basis for several editions of the Bradt guide Africa Overland, including the sixth edition published in May 2014. In Kathmandu they previously worked with Pilgrims Publishing, producing cultural guides - Kathmandu: Valley of the Green-Eyed Yellow Idol and Ladakh: Land of Magical Monasteries - and a historical look at the Guge Kingdom, Kailash: Land of the Tantric Mountain. In 2007 they wrote the Cicerone guide to Mount Kailash and Western Tibet, as well updating the Grand Canyon guide. During 2011 they returned to Tibet, this time driving the same old Land Rover back from Kathmandu to the UK overland via Lhasa, through China, Kazakhstan, Russia and Western Europe. Their Annapurna trekking guide was published by Cicerone in January 2013. For Himalayan Map House they are writing a series of trekking guidebooks (Himalayan Travel Guides) covering the newly developing Great Himalaya Trail. So far their publications include a guide to Manaslu and the Tsum Valley; Upper and Lower Dolpo; Ganesh Himal (Tamang Heritage Trail); Everest; Langtang, Gosainkund & Helambu (Tamang Heritage Trail); Rolwaling & Gauri Shankar (Lapche, Bigu & Tashi Lapcha); and Nepal Himalaya, covering all of the above and most of the Himalayan range.

A trekking guide is only useful when you can use it on the trek. You do not want to memorize all before trekking. The format of the book is a bit too large for the backpack or pocket and the maps lack some detail.The photos are only black and white and very small. The text is rather O.K, will check details out when on this trek later this year. Not really to be compared with the style of a trailblazer or Ciccerone book (maps and size) ... read more when I come back from the trek, using the book ...

A worthwhile book 28 Jan. 2014
By SA Trekker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I ordered the book prior to travelling to Nepal last fall to give me some background of the two areas. I used it on a daily basis while on the trek, and found it much more complete than the LP guide I had with me. My only complaint is that the authors are not critical enough of the bad lodges that need to be slammed.

The book held up fine, despite getting wet and normal abuse of grinding around in a backpack.

This is one of the only comprehensive guides to this trek and it has been instrumental in our planning. More to report when I get back in October 2014!
