'This labour of love is truly the new route planning Bible! Main routes and obscure routes are all covered with just the detail you need.' Jamie McGuinness, author of Trekking in the Everest Region and four-time Everest climber.

Well researched and written
Detailed accounts of popular (and some lesser known) treks in Ladakh, Himachal, and Uttarakhand. Depi Chaudhry's book is a great resource for anyone considering trekking in these regions - from the first timer to the veteran mountaineer. I use it to plan my annual visits to the Himalayas. Each trek comes with detailed maps, best season, a day by day account of the trek, level of difficulty, and common sense advice.
