Book Review: Trekking in the Indian Himalaya, by Garry Weare, *****

Synopsis
Our expert author, trekking the Indian Himalaya since 1970, will be your guide to some of the world's most awesome trekking. This book covers the region's top treks, through the Buddhist villages and high passes of Ladakh, the spectacular mountains and verdant valley of Himachal Pradesh, and the sacred pilgrimage sites and high-altitude meadows of Uttarakhand. Whether you are an experienced trekker or a first-timer, you're sure to find the ultimate trekking experience here.

Review
This is a very complete guidebook on all of the major treks in the Indian Himalaya. Easy to carry around for reference during your trek. Lots of detailed maps are very helpful. There are also quite a few color photos that create the right mood during the planning period at home and serve as nice memories for those who don't take their own pics.

This review refers to the 2002 edition, but you should buy the most recent one here:
