Product description

Top Treks of the World is a beautifully illustrated, inspirational guide to the best long walks in the world. It uses wonderful mountain and wilderness photography to cover 29 of the best treks in the world, each piece written by an expert on the route. It features Asia (Nepal, Bhutan, India, Pakistan, Tibet and Turkey), Australasia, North and South America (from the Appalachian Trail to Patagonia), Europe (from the Alps to Corsica), and Africa (from Morocco to Namibia). A trek is a walk that takes people away from civilization into a place they could not reach if not on foot, and which requires them to rely on other skills than the mere perambulatory. With this book a reader can walk the routes in spirit, and there's enough practical information to allow the planning of a trip when a place takes a hold on the imagination. This book is for anyone who has ever trekked, or dreamed of trekking, or simply loves the pure beauty of remote places.
