On Amazon recently. I really want to hike the GHT in a few years, and plan on getting it for route planning.See what you think.http://www.amazon.com/Nepal-Trekking-Himalaya-Trailblazer-Guides/dp/1905864310/ref=wl_it_dp_o?ie=UTF8&coliid=I1SXXODOIETSEG&colid=1AJD7Q94PI569Sorry I didn't link it directly, I need practice with that.
Nepal is a unique destination for trekking in Nepal, hiking in Nepal because of its unbeatable combination of natural beauty and cultural riches. And the most appropriate way to experience. It is walk through them. Nepal is a special and rewarding mountain holiday and tough or easy walking trip following well developed trails. With a trek around Nepal, you will directly experience our culture and way of life of different ethnic people, religion and festivals.ThanksMVMTravel
shawn,i've been reading up pretty seriously re: trekking in nepal since i'll be leaving for a 3 month trip in a little over 60 days. i don't remember seeing any information about the passes you've listed in any of the three books i have at my disposal (though not at my immediate disposal since i'm not at home). these include:the roughing it guide to nepalthe lonely planet trekking himalaya (nepal) guideand something by the cicerone press (spelling?) devoted especially to the everest regionyou'd do well to post questions like this in the lonely planet thorne tree forums. and again, most of the information there is going to skew more towards the traditional trekking routes.
Not a direct answer, but I'd ready Justin Lichter's information about the GHT. I think there will be talk of some of those passes. http://justinlichter.com/?page_id=858
