This book is to introduce alternatives to the most popular trekking routes, and thereby contribute to spread tourism and income generation to more remote areas, the authors explained during the launch. The book contains a lot of options that the tourist does not usually think of or know about. The book should also contribute to more realistic and ´healthy´ expectations than is usually the case with tourists. Therefore the book has a thorough introduction to social, economic, political conditions as well as cultural and religious traditions. Focus on environment and sustainability is important in view of Nepal´s extreme vulnerability. The authors also said that tourists to Nepal are conscious and seek something else than the ordinary tourist packages and that the book seeks to support this trend.
This book has its obvious justification. The book contains a lot of trekking options depending on the visitor´s interest and physical fitness, as well as advices from the experienced authors on how to prepare for visiting Nepal and thereby lay the foundation for realistic expectations and a successful experience.
