  • Walks and Climbs in the Pyrenees

    Kev Reynolds

    Product Code: BZITJ
    Paperback
    Essential guidebook of walks and climbs in the Pyrenees, one of Europe's finest mountain ranges. The guide includes 170 day walks, multi-day walks, climbing routes and mountaineering ascents, and covers all valleys and peaks on both sides of the border with France and Spain, with through routes and peaks to bag. The guidebook divides the range into 21 sections, including Andorra, the Ordesa National Park, the Carlit Massif, Gavarnie and the Cirque du Lescun to name a few. Each area includes practical information on travel, accommodation and mountain refuges, as well sketch mapping. Between short, half-hour walks, to 12-day treks and 25 summits, this guidebook will help any walker, climber or trekker experience the best of the Pyrenees. The active walker, trekker and climber is spoilt for choice. There are exquisite valleys and passes to wander and summits of 3000m and more within the reach of most hill walkers. The landscape is full of diversity and contrast, with Alpine-style peaks, small glaciers, deep gorges and more than 1000 mountain lakes. The range is also known as the 'flower garden of Europe', and the wildlife includes various species rarely seen elsewhere on the continent. Since the first edition appeared in 1978, Walks and Climbs in the Pyrenees has become accepted as the authoritative guide to the range and has been continuously updated and in print. For centuries the Pyrenees were dismissed as holding little of importance to the climber and mountain walkers ignored them almost completely. But all that has changed and the Pyrenees have now become the focus of attention for mountain activists of all degrees of commitment.

  • Walking in the Engadine - Switzerland

    Kev Reynolds

    Product Code: BYJMG
    Paperback
    Walking in the Engadine contains detailed route descriptions for 100 day walk routes that vary from 4 to 16km long in length. The routes cover a variety of terrain from luscious meadows and craggy mountains to glaciers and snowpeaks. Most of the walks described in this guidebook have been chosen with a particular viewpoint, lake, alp hamlet, hut or pass as the destination, while the principal objective of each walk is to enjoy a day's exercise among stimulating scenery. There's something for every walker's taste: gentle valley rambles for a family outing; craggy mid-mountain walks for the more adventurous; high-level routes that lead across glacier, snowfield and rugged passes for the experienced mountain trekker. Tucked away in the south-east corner of Switzerland, the Engadine is a region of lakes and mountains, home of the country's only national park, guardian of the Romansch language and location for some of the most sublime villages in all the Alps.

  • Chamonix to Zermatt

    Kev Reynolds

    Product Code: BYATE
    Paperback
    A guidebook to the classic Chamonix to Zermatt trek from Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn. The 225km Walker's Haute Route through the French and Swiss Alps crosses 11 passes, gains more than 14,000m in height and is a strong contender for the title of Most Beautiful Walk in Europe. The high-level route is described in 14 day stages, with optional variants, and is suitable for walkers with a good level of fitness and some previous alpine trekking experience. The final approach to Zermatt adopts the dramatic Europaweg, a high-level traverse of the east wall of the Mattertal, crossing the 500-metre suspension bridge above Randa. An alternative valley route to Zermatt can be taken if this does not appeal. Alongside clear route descriptions and mapping for each stage of the trek, there is essential practical information on travel to Chamonix and return from Zermatt, as well as advice on accommodation in alpine villages and mountain refuges, trekking safety, equipment, itinerary planning and preparation. Taking 2 weeks to complete, this challenging but rewarding trek encompasses views of the greatest collection of 4000 metre peaks in the Alps - Mont Blanc, the Grand Combin, Dent Blanche, Weisshorn and the Matterhorn - and visits some of the most spectacular valleys, including the Val d'Herens, Val d'Annivers and the Mattertal.

The route is suitable for those with some experience of Alpine trekking: it amasses over 20,000m of ascent and involves some steep sections. It can be completed in 2-3 weeks, although it is also possible to walk shorter sections; alternatively postbus, cable-car and rail connections could be used to allow for a tighter schedule.

Each pass has its own character - from the spectacular Hohturli to bustling Kleine Scheidegg - opening onto new vistas and horizons. This is a journey to savour and one which will linger long in the heart and memory.

    On eight treks in Nepal's Himalaya; to Kanchenjunga, Manaslu, Annapurna, Everest, Langtang, Dolpo, Api and Mugu, the true spirit of trekking is captured in Kev Reynolds' reverence, curiosity and ongoing love of the world's greatest mountain range.

While some seek to reach their snowy heights, many more step out onto winding and climbing trails to trek through the heart of the mountains, and live - if only for a little while - the life of an adventurer. The first time a trail is explored offers unknown beauty and fresh experience around every turn. This is Kev Reynolds' collection of eight such discoveries along popular trails and into lands previously locked away. Brought to life in vivid style, Reynolds evokes the scent of fragrant rhododendron jungles and travelling past terraced fields, hillside villages and ancient temples. Then exploring into hidden valleys beyond the reach of civilization, and on to towering, ice-locked peaks that scratch the sky. All proceeds from sales of this book will be donated to the Nepal Earthquake Appeal.
