A versatile treck planner 29 Jun. 2008
By Alexey Polonsky - Published on
Format: Paperback
I found this book to be of a really great help in planning my trip. The book provides difficulty rating for each day of multi-day treks. There are also suggestions on how to split 5-6 days treks into shorter ones with "how-to-get-there" directions.
There are also several suggestions for trekking with kids, which was of a particular interest for me as I am planning to trek in Austrian Alps with my wife and a 3-years old kid.

Many different routes explained in terms of location, distance, difficulty as well as other useful information about where one might lodge or eat. Best suited for walking or moderate hiking... nothing in the book is overly difficult or technical.
