If you are going to Tibet or western Sichuan, or Gansu, or Qinghai provinces, you must have this book. Simple as that, even if you are not a serious trekker, the info in this book is invaluable. Nothing like it anywhere.

Gary McCue's third edition of Trekking Tibet is THE definitive guide to visiting and walking the trails of this magical land. Few Westerners know Tibet as well as Gary, who has been trekking there since the mid-1980s.

Trekking Tibet not only features excellent maps, detailed descriptions and day-to-day itineraries for many popular and lesser-known routes - it goes well beyond trekking, with useful sections on topics such as preparation, clothing and equipment, `staying healthy' (including first aid on the trail and in remote locations), money, cultural considerations, history and religion, and environmental awareness. For those who are interested in natural history, the guidebook also contains information on geology, geography, flora and fauna. A big plus is `Tibetan for trekkers', with useful words and phrases, and even a guide to pronunciation.

This completely revised and updated book is undoubtedly the ultimate guide to the adventure of walking in Tibet - and it truly is a guidebook; practical, portable and not too heavy to carry in a backpack. Don't leave home without it!

Often times, the thing most trekkers/hikers want out of a trekking book is a list of places to go with some topo maps and maybe some advice given the particular trail/region of the country. This book gives you all the trekking/hiking trips you could ever want to go on in Tibet but it does something else, it inspires you to go there and do it.

The photos in the book are amazing and really capture the sense of the place. Even more than that, the book gives you a great historical backdrop to the who/what/wheres and whys of Tibet and most importantly, gives you the current situation of getting around in Tibet. Being a country halfway around the world from the US under authoritarian control, one cannot rely on the Internet alone for finding out how to get around and who to go with when you are in Tibet. This book gives you the lowdown from visas needed (and where to get them) to what food to expect, what customs need to be respected, all of that.

As a hiker myself, I really appreciated the descriptions of all the various treks in addition to the approximate hours and the number of days to various points along the way. At the end of the day, if you are going Tibet, this is THE book to have. Another great one from Mountaineers Books!

In this updated 3rd Edition (2010), Gary McCue takes into account the recent, increased political repression of Tibet by China and the opening of the Tibet Railway on general travel and trekking. More impressive, however, was the inclusion of cultural and geographic Tibet within the political boundaries of China in this well-written and easy-to-read travel guide: Large communities of Tibetans have lived for centuries in the neighboring provinces of Qinghai, Gansu, Szechuan and Yunnan. And, some of these areas are even more remote, more difficult to access and more rugged than the well-known Himalayas. The cultural, historical and geographical notes interspersed in the narrative provide a wonderful context to travel. Well done!
