The Rough Guide to Nepal Reviews
I went to Nepal last year as part of a group tour. I was armed with this guide in order to do some exploring on my own in Kathmandu & Pokhara, and to have the right background for hiking a few days along the Annapurna trek. Wherever I go, the Rough Guide is usually my first choice as it contains a well-balanced mix of background info, dependable information on hotels/restaurants/transportation, fantastic topic-related inserts (e.g., the people of Nepal), and good pictures of the top attractions. For example, I was very happy when I visited several UNESCO World Heritage sites in Nepal - the Rough Guide came in very handy with its detailed descriptions of walking routes and associated maps (no local guide was necessary).
This is a good travel guide - very similar to the Lonely Planet one. Few pictures but the ones they have are very beautiful. The layout of the chapter on Kathmadu is a little confusing because they divide the city into sections and have all the hotels and restaurants in these sections (which are sometimes only a 5 minute walk from one another)...so you can't just look one up alphabetically.
Helpful guide, and I appreciate the quirky Brit humor. But the maps and diagrams are low resolution thumbnails that cannot be meaningfully expanded, leaving them unreadable. Make the maps higher resolution and you'll have a winner, but as is, I feel like my money was largely wasted on the Kindle version.
The condition of the book is worse than I thought. Some pages are wrinkled.
