Pocket First Aid and Wilderness Medicine

This compact book should be a must read and must carry for anyone going trekking. It has comprehensive and easy to understand illustrated sections on just about anything you can imagine happening in the hills. It also has an extensive medicine list with full instructions on use.  Don’t leave home without it.

When it comes to trekking in the Indian Himalaya you can't omit Harish Kapadia.No one has written more books on the subject. There's Across peaks and passes in Kumaun Himalaya,Garhwal,Himachal Pradesh, Ladakh,Zanskar and Eastern Karakoram. A good overall guide is High Himalaya Unknown Valleys.They are published byIndus Publshing Company available from Amrit Book co.21-n Connaught Circus New Delhi-1. Another comprehensive guide is The Indian Himalaya by Manmohan Singh Bawa published by Leomann Maps. Email .For info on the central Himalaya there is Minakshi Chaudhry's Guide to Trekking in Himachal.Also put out by Indus Publishing. If you want a taste of yester years trekking turn to This my voyage by Tom Longstaff and Himalayan Odyssey by Trevor Braham available secondhand on Alibris,The Mountaineers,Amazon etc. For Nepal I recommend Steve Razetti's Climbing and Trekking in Nepal.
Best wishes
