Cicerone Annapurna - A Trekker's Guide

Annapurna - A Trekker's Guide

Seen from the lakeside town of Pokhara in central Nepal, a tremendous wall of snow- and ice-capped mountains dominates the northern hori­zon: the Annapurna Himal. With no less than twelve 7000m (23,OOOft) summits, this is not only one of the world's most beautiful landscapes but also its most popular trekking region. And no wonder.

Around this impressive block goes tbe classic Aonapurna Circuit ­one of the great walks of the world. Into the heart of the mountains leads a trail to the Annapurna Sanctuary. Through the world's deepest valley goes the Pilgrim's Trail to Muktinath, while the Ghandruk Foothill Trek provides an introduction to some of the best of Nepal's hill villages and mountain views.

- Each of these treks is described, with full route details for 'tea­

house trekkers' and those travelling with an organised group.

- The guide includes information on lodges, tea-houses and villages.
- There are sections on how to plan a trek, where and when to go,

permits and preparations, health matters and interaction with local people and culture.

- The guide also provides suggestions for other treks in the region. ...

'If the Annapurnas present an enticing goal, It;en there can be no better source of information than Kev Reynolds's Annapurna - A Trekker's Guide', Lindsay Griffin (review of 1 st edition, High, Sept 1994).
