Product description

Review

"Packing in as much information in its 80 pages as many books will bloat out over 200 ..."; Judges' comment, OWPG Award for Excellence guidebook winner, October 2016; "The guide is well illustrated, easy to navigate and dip in and out of depending what you are looking for and written in an easy to understand style. Profits from the sale of the book are being donated to Mountain People, a charity that helps the people of Nepal help themselves."; Reviewed by Scotland Outdoors 2016 page 23, which nominated it as "Our favourite"; "The contents are very well organised with quite detailed information on a number of background topics in the first half to help you plan your trip and to help you better understand the cultures and practices in Nepal and in the the Solu Khumbu. The sections on Buddhism and on altitude effects and Acute Mountain Sickness seem particularly comprehensive from my perspective as somebody who lived in Nepal for five years, and are very readable. Overall, another excellent guide from Rucksack Readers, with an impressive amount of information in its 80 pages, all very accessible."; Patrick O'Sullivan, Editor, Irish Mountain Log, Autumn 2016 page 64

Format: Spiral-bound
Trek to Everest is a comprehensive guide for first time trekkers to Everest Base Camp, although it does also include alternative routes to Gokyo Ri and over the Cho La as these routes also provide spectacular views of Everest. There are day-to-day accounts of what the routes would entail, including where best to stop for acclimatisation breaks and to experience local delicacies. All of this is backed up with photographs and maps, showing the high-levels of research and excellent consultancy that went into the making of the guide book.
At the beginning of the guide there are helpful tips on dealing with acclimatisation problems such as altitude sickness and how best to tip the local guides. Throughout, there are mentions of the 2015 earthquakes and the damage that was caused, as well as ways in which readers and trekkers can help with the relief funds—just by buying the book you will be helping. It ends with a quick guide to some much needed everyday sayings in Nepali.
The views seen in the photos throughout the book are remarkable, with many having been taken by Jacquetta Megarry herself. That being said, the quality of some of them are not great, but I’m sure this can be forgiven by readers looking for advice and information about the actual treks.
The commentary throughout is particularly engaging, with the authors’ matter of fact writing voice leading to a certain level of honest humour. This has also helped to solidify my desire to one day trek to Base Camp myself, although I might have to now take a detour to Gokyo Ri!

This is an excellent guide book. The background is well researched and the advice is insightful and shows real understanding of the country and the people. I think it covers everything you need to know, not just about trekking to EBC but about trekking in general and about the need to support the Sherpa people after the recent tradgedies.
