Before I go to a new country, I search out the books of thsi series to see whether there ison ewhich covers the destination. Every one has been spot-on. An absolute must if you are travelling to Nepal.

Wonderful writing, and a genuine insight into the poeple and palces that make up this fascinating country.

I loved this collection of travel stories. Having just returned from Nepal, these stories really added to my experience. In some stories, I recognized aspects of my own experiences; other stories added to my knowledge of Nepal through other peoples' experiences. In addition, it provides insights into cultural does and don'ts. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in learning more about Nepal or headed there for the first time.
