    The definitive guide for Trekking in Tibet

    This book is the definitive guide to trekking in the magical land of Tibet. Gary McCue has spent much of his life exploring and leading treks throughout Tibet and the Himalaya. The 3rd edition of his guidebook, "Trekking Tibet" is a newly updated and expanded version of this classic companion. This book provides a detailed description and maps of the main trekking routes as well as some of the lesser known routes. Unlike some other texts, the trekking routes include areas outside the T.A.R. (Tibet Autonomous Region) but still within the Tibetan world. Whether you are heading out to tackle one of these treks or just pondering the possibilities, this guidebook will provide the details, day-to-day itineraries, and must-see highlights. McCue has hiked each of these routes himself (most multiple times) and taken copious notes which are distilled in this book. The trek maps and descriptions are certainly the most accurate available in any Tibet guidebook. In addition to the nuts and bolts of trek life, this book also includes excellent notes on Tibetan culture, history, religion, and health issues on trek. It even includes an appendix of common Tibetan language phrases and a chapter on bicycling. I have had the privilege of trekking in Tibet on six occasions and this book as been my constant companion. Even when traveling with an organized trekking company or pondering my choice of treks, this book is my first reference for helping me decide on my journey. This guidebook is authentic, accurate, and (in my opinion) required for trekking Tibet. Tashi Delek!
