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!
