Unread, unmarked. Index. Color photos. This guide describes in detail seven major treks in the Annapurna & Himalayas regions including Mt. Everest - what routes to follow, sights to see, accommodation, inhabitants one will encounter, etc. Instead of the usual maps and hand-drawn sketches, the author has created special diagrams to show the various elevations at various selected stages on the trek and at each stopping place. There is also an intro with practical information, such as When, where, and how to trek? What equipment to take? Health precautions, visas/permits, Nepal's history and religion, and the ten great summits. The treks are: (1.) Around the Annapurnas (2.) The Annapurna Sanctuary (3.) Gosain Kund, Langtang and Helambu (4.) From Jiri to Namche Bazaar (5.) Everest Base Camp (6.) Gokyo Lakes (7.) From Jumla to Lake Rara. Each trek has an accompanying route map. There are also five main maps of Nepal, Kathmandu, Jomoson, Pokhara, and Namche Bazaar. The guide also includes a glossary of Nepali and Tibetan terms, days, food, people, trekking, and other useful words and phrases. Throughout the guide there are superb color photographs including several two-page spreads. ; 200 pages

Azerbaijan with Excursions to Georgia, Elliott, Mark
2 Elliott, Mark Azerbaijan with Excursions to Georgia
Hindhead, England Trailblazer Publications 2001 1873756496 / 9781873756492 Second Edition Paperback New 4 3/4" x 7" 
Unread, unmarked. Perched beside the oil-rich Caspian Sea, compact, hospitable Azerbaijan is astounding in its scenic variety. Painted moonscape deserts, snow-capped Caucasian peaks, subtropical forests and flower-filled grasslands all lie within a few hours' drive of Baku, the artistically-vibrant, cosmopolitan capital with its UNESCO-recognized walled Old City. This book helps the traveler with the practical details of visiting Azerbaijan while also discussing Azerbaijan's history and geography. Azerbaijan, a small country where few speak English, has been little traveled in the past, and very little is known about the area beyond the metropolitan capital of Baku and its oil production. That can change with this guide which fills those information gaps with advice for motorists, as well as facts regarding visas, lodging, eating and more. The book even includes native versions of commonly used words, essential in doing virtually anything in Azerbaijan. The guide uses hand drawn, detailed maps to help the reader with geography, but the maps are also invaluable in their inclusion of points of interest and comments on each site. The entire country is covered, with its desert moonscapes, tropical forests, volcanoes and snow-capped mountains and its history steeped in myth and magic. Azerbaijan's equally neglected neighbor, Georgia, is outlined in this guide as well, leading readers to a unique and exciting travel experience.; 352 pages
