September in Leh, Ladakh I found an excellent hiking guidebook by Depi Chaudhry in a bookstore.
It includes 43 treks in Ladakh, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. A quick summary of each along with good maps, altitude charts, colour photos, etc.
Depi has hiked 70% of the routes in the book; the rest put together with information collated from other trekkers. Having completed the best of the bunch already – Markha Valley – I’m finding it a good starting point for deciding where to head next.
So far I’m leaning towards hiking out of Dharmsala and Manali on my next Indian adventure. 🙂
