Kangchenjunga: A Trekker's Guideby Kev Reynolds
At 28,169ft (85886m) Kangchenjunga in far north-eastern Nepal is the world's third highest peak. It's a huge, spectacular mountain with five tops and five glaciers dominating a spur from the main Himalayan axis. The trek to its base via the Nepalese foothills has been describing quite simply as The Most Beautiful Walk in the World.This book is a guide to that trek. It describes the trails, villages and views, gives a potted history of some of the mountains, and adds background interest for anyone planning a visit to the area. It's a sparsely populated region with a greater sense of isolation than in more populated areas of Nepal. The trails are rougher, the facilities more primitive and the routes less well defined, offering a different kind of experience to that of the more mainstream routes and with the undisputed scenic grandeur for which Nepal is famous.
