Synopsis

A guidebook describing 5 main treks of up to a week in the Himalaya's Langtang National Park region in Nepal, also Gosainkund and Helambu. There is no finer way of getting to know Nepal than by discarding the burdens of Western society, wandering her trails and growing receptive to her charms. Trekking holds the key to a wealth of experience, and Nepal will repay tenfold all your labours. This book covers two relatively small regions of this land of Shangri-La, Latang and Helambu, linked by the sacred lakes of Gosainkund. Easily reached from Kathmandu they hold a rich diversity of landscape, culture and vegetation. The first is a high, seemingly remote valley running parallel with the Tibetan border and flanked by lofty mountains; the second is more populous, with verdant hillsides, a benevolent climate and several prosperous villages, while the lakes of Gosainkund are trapped in wild country wedged between the two. Packed with useful information for both independent and group trekkers, plus over 20 trekking routes, glossary and bibliography, this is another outstanding trekkers' guide by Kev Reynolds to add to those on Annapurna and Everest.

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. 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.
