Top Treks of the World uses wonderful mountain and wilderness photography to present 30 of the best hikes in the world. While the images inspire, the text and maps allow readers to follow each route. There are details on the local culture, flora and fauna, and facilities and camping along the route. The book features paths through Asia (including Tibet and Nepal), North and South America (from the Appalachian Trail to Patagonia), Europe (from the Alps to Corsica), Australia, and Africa (from Morocco to Namibia). Compiled by experts with firsthand knowledge of each route, it captures beautiful and spiritually charged places through photography and the words of the adventurers who have explored them.
