Kangchenjunga: A Trekker's Guide

Synopsis

A guide to trekking in the Kangchenjunga region of the Himalayas of Nepal. At 28,169ft (8586m) Kangchenjunga in far north-eastern Nepal is the world's third highest peak. It's a huge, spectacular mountain with five tops and five glaciers dominating a spur from the main Himalayan axis. The trek to its base via the Nepalese foothills has been described quite simply as the most beautiful walk in the world. This book is a guide to that trek. It describes the trails, villages and views, gives a potted history of some of the mountains, and adds background interest for anyone planning to visit the area. It's a sparsely populated region with a greater sense of isolation than in the more popular areas of Nepal. The trails are rougher, the facilities more primitive and the routes less well defined, offering a different kind of experience to that of the more mainstream routes and with the undisputed scenic grandeur for which Nepal is famous. The author, Kev Reynolds, describes three possible approach routes and two link routes, with two main destinations, both in spectacular locations.

A lifelong passion for the countryside in general, and mountains in particular, drives Kev's desire to share his sense of wonder and delight in the natural world through his writing, guiding, photography and lecturing. Spending several months each year among various high mountain regions researching guidebooks, makes him The Man with the World's Best Job; a title he aims to keep by remaining active for another 100 years at least. Kev has enjoyed a fruitful partnership with Cicerone since the 1970s, producing walking and trekking guides to the Pyrenees, Alps and Himalaya, as well as walking guides for Kent, Sussex and the Cotswolds and he has several more books in the pipeline. A frequent contributor to outdoor magazines, he also writes and illustrates brochures for national tourist authorities and travel companies. When not away in the mountains, Kev lives with his wife in a small cottage among what he calls 'the Kentish Alps' with unrestricted walking country on the doorstep. But he also travels throughout Britain during the winter months to share his love of the places he writes about through a series of lectures.
