Two good Langtang area guide books
What to buy: To my knowledge there are two dedicated guidebooks to Langtang, in addition to the UNDP booklet on Lower Langtang.
1) Kev Reynolds 1996: "Langtang with Gosainkunda & Helambu. A Trekker's Guide", A Cicerone Guide, Cicerone Press, Milnthorpe, UK.
2) Jamie McGuinness 1997: "Trekking in Langtang, Helambu & Gosainkund". Nepal Trekking Guides, Trailblazer Publications, Hindhead, UK.
I know that the last one has been published in an updated version after I bought mine in '97. What with the other one I do not know. Both books are about equally good, the latter somewhat larger and more comprehensive
What to pay: 1) USD 22.95 (1996)
2) GBP 8.85 (1997)
Get this book in KTM!
What to buy: Before you go to Langtang check out the little book "East Trek the Lower Langtang", published by Pradhan & Harrison, UNDP Partnership for Quality Tourism Project, Nepal 1997.
It is a thin but informative handbook about trails, villages, houses and peoples and everything else you need to trek sensitively and sensibly in the lower end of Langtang: the Dunche-Syabrubensi-Goasinkunda triangle. A good help on the trail and a good memory when you return home. Warmly recommended!
What to pay: NRS 250 a couple of years ago.
