The 14 treks described in this guide lead around tranquil lakes, through rich farming country, forests of bamboo and rhododendron, cool rainforest, silent alpine glades and rugged, high mountain desert to explore this magical region. Treks are suitable for people across a range of abilities; the Annapurna Circuit is a serious and strenuous expedition; checklist for all pre-departure preparation, including permits and health matters; various linking treks for the adventurous; appendix of useful words, phrases and religious terms."--Back cover.
