Trekking and Travel Books

There are many series of trekking and travel books to choose from. My favourites are:

  • Lonely Planet - my favourite travel guidebook series. I use them for every trip.
  • Kev Reynolds - his trekking guidebooks for Cicerone are superb.

For books, in addition to Amazon, I use the following websites to find out-of-print or hard to find books.

Although trekking books have some very good maps, I usually try and buy a 1:50000 map.
