  • Out of date

    By jessicarobinson
    This book is frustratingly inaccurate and out of date, especially the trekking portion. It has wrong prices and restrictions on trekking permits. Prices are also quite different from what's listed in the book; often 20-50% more than listed in book (from food to hotels to transportation). Poor advice as well - for example, book states that you shouldn't buy trekking gear in Kathmandu but Kathmandu has what must be the widest range of trekking gear available than any other place worldwide. A lot of big brand names also have authorized retailers in Kathmandu. Don't buy this book...
