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.
