Format: Paperback
I used this book during my six weeks in Nepal spring 2004 (trekking in Lantang, Helambu and Annapurna regions), and was glad to have it. In fact, I have my copy sitting in front of me right now! It gives detailed information on many of the better-traveled treks, along with some that are more out of the way. Plenty of information, including topo maps, to help you plan your trip or your day. Before I bought it, I sat down with several other guidebooks in an actual bookstore (yes, they do still exist!), and really felt that this one was the winner.

The most major component that I felt lacking was that there are many small guest houses or tea shops along most routes that are not mentioned at all, or that have sprung up since publication. But I soon figured that out on my own, and simply asked locals and other trekkers for advice. Overall, I definitely recommend this book. Enjoy your trip! I can't wait to go back!

*Note: Kathmandu has some great bookstores in the Thamel (tourist) district, and many (not all) books are cheaper than in the US (maybe pirated??). If you can wait, consider buying there.

Format: Paperback
If you are going the Nepal to trek, this is an invaluable guide. I was in Nepal for three weeks and I used this book everyday. Stan Armington knows Nepal better than anyone. He has help from people like Jamling Tenzing Norgay and many others. This is an essential guide to the trekking in Nepal.

I have used this book on three, 2 month trips and have found it very helpful. I have also used it extensively to plan and dream about future trips. The book is very informative and the descriptions are accurate. Buying this book is the first step of organizing an incredible journey. Dancing on the Edge of an Endangered Planet

Lonely Planet publishes good stuff. Stan Armington is a great guide, very knowledgeable, tells the truth, and he's a great human being. How can you lose? I went on a trek Stan led (way back when the crust of the earth had just cooled...) to Everestt Base Camp, and we've been friends ever since. He runs Malla Treks now. Trust him.
