Excellent guidebook for this part of China, with the level of detail that is lacking from the overall China LP. It lives up to LP expectations concerning country information and has enough maps to cover even smaller towns. Price information should be treated as guidelines. Read full review

Ghorepani we descend for the beautiful Gurung (name of a tribe) village of
Ghandruk on the lap of the Annapurna’s. The village is known for its traditional
houses, rich culture and the great
landscape. Walking down through the innumerable
steps we make a loop at Birethanti and 1000m catch our vehicle for Pokhara at
Naya-pul.We trek back no part of the trail on this itinerary. On our whole trek, we
use the mountain lodges called the tea houses for our food and accommodation.
