This stunning book will show you places you never dreamed still existed. Nepal is the most mountainous country on earth and hides many secrets in a maze of remote valleys where small communities have lived unchanged for hundreds of years. Folklore and superstition are woven into everyday life to create some of the most mysterious and magical places on the planet. The GHT crosses every one of Nepal’s mighty mountain ranges through forests, jungles, over passes and glaciers, and across windswept plateaus. Delight in photos from the first expedition to trek and map the Great Himalaya Trail in Nepal: the majesty of Mount Everest, the barren villages of upper Dolpo, lush rhododendron forests in Kanchenjunga and Makalu, ancient Buddhist gompas in Mustang, and village festivals throughout the country.
