Trekking Guide to Upper & Lower Dolpo (A)  

Questa guida č la pił recente introduzione al trekking intorno e attraverso una vasta regione sconosciuta. Il Dolpo potrebbe non avere l'aura o la fama internazionale della regione dell'Everest, ma c'č un'aria magica di misticismo su questa terra dimenticata. Ha un fascino remoto che richiede di scoprire i tesori nascosti in questi paesaggi abitati dai tibetani.
Dolpo č un luogo di misteriosi canyon, cime scintillanti e affioramenti scolpiti in modo strano. I suoi resistenti abitanti conducono la loro vita attraverso i ritmi del Bon e del buddhismo tibetano; i monasteri sono leggendari e seducenti. Per cosģ tanto tempo oltre l'orizzonte, il Dolpo č sorprendente e segreto. Vai presto!


Recensione in altra lingua (English):

This guide is the definitive introduction to trekking around and across a vast, undiscovered region. Dolpo may not have the aura or international renown of the Everest region, but there is a magical air of mysticism about this forgotten land. It has a remote charm that calls for more trekkers to discover the treasures hidden in these Tibetan-dominated landscapes. Dolpo is a place of mysterious canyons, sparkling summits and strangely sculpted outcrops. Its hardy inhabitants conduct their lives through the rhythms of Bon and Tibetan Buddhism; the monasteries are legendary and enticing. For so long beyond the horizon, Dolpo is astonishing and secretive. Go soon!

Siān Pritchard-Jones and Bob Gibbons met in 1983, on a trek from Kashmir to Ladakh. By then Bob had already driven an ancient Land Rover from England to Kathmandu (in 1974), and overland trucks across Asia, Africa and South America. He had also lived in Kathmandu for two years, employed as a trekking company manager. Before they met, Siān worked in computer programming and systems analysis. Since they met they have been leading and organising treks in the Alps, Nepal and the Sahara, as well as driving a bus overland to Nepal. Journeys by a less ancient (only 31-year-old) Land Rover from England to South Africa provided the basis for several editions of the Bradt guide Africa Overland, including the sixth edition published in April 2014. In 2007 they wrote the Cicerone guide to Mount Kailash and Western Tibet, as well updating the Grand Canyon guide. Their Annapurna trekking guide was first published by Cicerone in January 2013, with the second edition in early 2017. In 2015 they were in Nepal during the earthquakes and published Earthquake Diaries: Nepal 2015. A Pictorial Guide to the Horn of Africa (Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia and Somaliland), Australia: Red Centre Treks and In Search of the Green-Eyed Yellow Idol, a 40-year travelogue & autobiography, are all published by Expedition World. Kanchi wrote her first book, Kanchi's Tale, after joining them on the trek to Makalu Base Camp. Following a second visit to Chad early in 2017, they published Chad: Tibesti, Ennedi & Borkou, as well as Kanchi goes to the Tibesti, a light-hearted educational book about the expedition. For Himalayan Map House they are writing a new series of trekking guidebooks: Himalayan Travel Guides. All books are also available on Amazon websites worldwide.
