User Review  - dryfly - LibraryThing

This book is indispensible for trekking in Nepal imo. Accurate and thorough, this guide book outclassed all the others back in 1991. I'm not sure how it compares in 2007 but I bet it still holds its own. Don't leave home without it! Looking back, it probably could use a few more photos.... Read full review
