Trekking in the Himalaya is governed by the monsoon; the majority of treks can be tackled in the spring or autumn while those north of the Himalaya may be enjoyed during summer.
Treks in this book are based in Pakistan India (Ladakh Zanskar Garwhal West Bengal and Sikkim) Nepal Tibet and Bhutan and begin from a variety of different towns and villages.
All routes included in the book are graded (Gentle Moderate Demanding or Expedition). A few moderate treks would suit first-time trekkers; most demand a high level of fitness; three are expedition treks where some mountaineering skills or special equipment are required.
