Product description


Birthplace of the Buddha, home of the Gurkhas, roof of the world, land of legend and beauty - within its narrow confines Nepal contains a spectacular variety of culture and landscapes. Nepal offers challenges to the hiker, mountain climber and lover of nature and wildlife. This guide is written by a team who have an understanding of the people and region. There is background information on the history, geography, the people, religion, art and architecture of the country. It contains comprehensive coverage of Kathmandu including a special section on short walks from the city. Trekking in the Himalayas is covered, with treks in the popular areas and in the less well known Eastern region. The guide includes practical information on: how to get to Tibet and Lhasa; where to go and how to get there; where to trek and how to plan a trek; information on wildlife reserves with maps; wildlife and vegetation; where to stay and eat on any budget; how to stay healthy; and what to buy and where to buy it.
