The Himalaya are a travel enthusiast’s dream. Long loved by hikers and adventurers, this mountainous range is one on most people’s bucket list.
Now expert guide Cam Honan has helped produce the most beautiful book which captures the area at its best.
Wanderlust Himalaya published by gestalten, who are well known for their exquisite books, is a real beauty and a must for those with a thirst for knowledge.
Cam has trekked across 56 countries and six continents and has logged more than 60,000 miles in three decades and his book is a fine collection of photographs and information which will transport you to this wonderful region.
His treks have allowed him to write three best sellers for gestalten and he has been described as “the most travelled hiker on earth’’, not a bad job!
The mountain range straddles Nepal, India, Pakistan, Tibet and Bhutan and is epic and mythical to all who love hiking.
And the book guides the reader through breathtaking nature, diverse cultures and various hikes across the whole region.
With spectacular photography, informative maps, firsthand tips and itineraries with an attractive mix of one day, multi day and long-distance trails, it offers you all you need to plan or dream about your adventure.
Reading the book transports you to places which become must visit. One of the most enjoyable sections is a trek through central Bhutan, with pictures of how the locals live in their traditional houses, surrounded by stunning scenery and pine needle stacks, dotted about the countryside and used as food for their animals. Dressed in national costume and enjoying local culture, the book is a great insight and summed up perfectly by Cam who says:
“Phephe La is forest covered and viewless. Beyond the high point, the trail initially continues under its green canopy before emerging into broad pastures dotted with sleepy homesteads.”
