VERY disappointed.
Not updated, not detailed.
It says on the cover "fully updated", but it is a shameless lie.
Hotels prices probably haven't been updated since the year 2000.
"Shining and new" hotels are actually old and peeled.
Trekking recommendations are highly not detailed.
Try the Bradt guide. I haven't, but it can't be any worse.
