The first of a series of colour scenic titles, this beautifully produced pictorial offers a rare glimpse of a country that is fast becomng an even more popular travel destination. Here, Murray Snyder offers the sights through sixteen different regions and treks through Nepal, from Kathmandu to Annapurna, from the Dhauligiri and the Mustang trekking areas to the famous Everest trek and the majestic mountains that surround - to name just a few.
More than a scenic guide to the well known and the 'off the beaten track' trekking regions, these images evoke the mystery and uniqueness of a culture that is centuries old. From ancient villages and street scenes to primitive country life, from women chatting over laundry in a river to families working the fields with traditional oxen, he has captured the soul of a country where time and customs are as ancient as the mountains that rise above the human settlements. Text and captions further illuminate the spectacular photography in this book.
Murray Snyder is a retired biochemist, now a world traveller and photographer.
