  • Jacket image for Nepal

    Nepal by Rough Guide

    Price: £15.99    Add to Basket
    A reliable, practical guide with in-depth coverage of the entire country. Great for logistics, background information and accommodation, although we recommend buying a separate guide for trekking.
  • Jacket image for Nepal

    Nepal by Insight Guides

    Price: £16.99    Add to Basket
    Always best used as a sightseeing companion or background reading material, the Insight guides are less useful for logistical information or finding accommodation. Focuses on cultural sights, activities and Kathmandu, accompanied by full-page colour photographs. We do recommend, however, that you buy a more specific guidebook for trekking.
  • Jacket image for Trekking in the Everest Region

    Trekking in the Everest Region by Trailblazer

    Price: £12.99    Add to Basket
    As well as the most comprehensive information on trekking, with 27 detailed route maps, this compact yet comprehensive guide also includes a section on Nepal and Kathmandu with maps, accommodation listings and historical and cultural information.
  • Jacket image for Trekking in the Nepal Himalaya

    Trekking in the Nepal Himalaya by Lonely Planet

    Price: £14.99    Add to Basket
    This decent guide covers eastern and western Nepal, Kathmandu, the Everest and Annapurna regions, and Langtang and Helambu. Also includes a section on Himalayan wildlife, 22 contour maps and detailed notes on treks including less visited alternative routes. Less reliable and detailed, however, than the Trailblazer series.

  • Jacket image for Trekking in the Himalayas

    Trekking in the Himalayas by White Star Guides

    Price: £15.95    Add to Basket

  • Jacket image for South Korea

    South Korea by Insight

    Price: £16.99    Add to Basket
    Fully illustrated with colour photographs, this guide is a good sightseer's companion with strong cultural and historical information. Frustratingly, the listings for hotels and restaurants are limited so it may be a good idea to take along a more practical guide for those.
  • Jacket image for Korea

    Korea by Rough Guide

    Price: £14.99    Add to Basket
    Most detailed guide to both North and South Korea and yet selective in its recommendations. Strong on practical information as well as cultural and historical background.

    Seoul by Lonely Planet

    Price: £13.99    Add to Basket
    One of the only detailed guides on Seoul, this is good for hotel listings and practical advice with excellent maps. It is not, however, more extensive than the section found in the Lonely Planet's guide to Korea.
  • Jacket image for North Korea

    North Korea by Bradt

    Price: £14.99    Add to Basket
