Trekking in Tibet. A Traveler's Guide

Trekking in Tibet  

In this thoroughly revised and updated new edition of "Trekking Tibet" travellers will learn the necessities of pre-trip planning and how to seek out the most rewarding treks in a region of the world few get to visit. This book features one of the most detailed histories of Tibetan culture and geography available for travellers. New features of the 3rd edition include an expanded section on East Tibet, with a new 15-day bicycle route around one of region's holiest mountains.
Also included is a new trekking route over a glaciated 19,300-foot pass used by Heinrich Harrer, author of Seven Years in Tibet. Other new treks include a five-day tour in the popular Lhasa region of the pilgrimage circuit of Lhamo Latsho; a new trek route over a pass used by George Mallory in 1921 on his first reconnaissance of Everest; a two-day trek in the Shishapangma region; and, four new treks in the Mount Kailash region.

About the Author
Free-lance trekking guide Gary McCue is based in Kathmandu. His first of many visits to Tibet came shortly after its borders opened to travelers in 1985. He has been a trek leader in the region since 1984, first in Nepal and later in Tibet. His travels have taken him to South America, New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia, and China.

Book Description
Bordered by the Himalaya on the south and the Karakoram on the west, Tibet offers trekkers an experience like no other. In this updated edition of Trekking in Tibet, McCue prepares us for a sojourn into this mystical, other-worldly land--presenting detailed discussions of pre-trip planning, the most rewarding treks, as well as an educational glimpse into the country's history and culture. This guide can be used for everything from a day hike near the forbidden city of Lhasa to a two-week trek in the shadow of Mount Everest's magical summit. Route information includes trek duration, distance, elevations, and highlights of the route. An invaluable Tibetan language chapter, visa and permit information, equipment and safety tips make this the definitive guidebook on trekking "the rooftop of the world."
