    My host sister weaving a new belt

    What to buy: The local crafts that these people make are beautiful. The bags are great as are the belts and the head scarves. But particualarly nice are the socks and gloves, they are very very warm.

    What to pay: Approx. 400Rs for a bag, 200Rs for a belt and 150Rs for some socks, but it really does depend on the quality and size.

    Good booksellers in KTM will have these.: Two good, dedicated Langtang trekking guide books

    by Saagar Updated Jun 25, 2004
    Two good Langtang area guide books

    What to buy: To my knowledge there are two dedicated guidebooks to Langtang, in addition to the UNDP booklet on Lower Langtang.

    1) Kev Reynolds 1996: "Langtang with Gosainkunda & Helambu. A Trekker's Guide", A Cicerone Guide, Cicerone Press, Milnthorpe, UK.

    2) Jamie McGuinness 1997: "Trekking in Langtang, Helambu & Gosainkund". Nepal Trekking Guides, Trailblazer Publications, Hindhead, UK.

    I know that the last one has been published in an updated version after I bought mine in '97. What with the other one I do not know. Both books are about equally good, the latter somewhat larger and more comprehensive

    What to pay: 1) USD 22.95 (1996)

    2) GBP 8.85 (1997)

    any decent bookseller in KTM: A good book about Lower Langtang

    by Saagar Written Jun 25, 2004
    Get this book in KTM!

    What to buy: Before you go to Langtang check out the little book "East Trek the Lower Langtang", published by Pradhan & Harrison, UNDP Partnership for Quality Tourism Project, Nepal 1997.

    It is a thin but informative handbook about trails, villages, houses and peoples and everything else you need to trek sensitively and sensibly in the lower end of Langtang: the Dunche-Syabrubensi-Goasinkunda triangle. A good help on the trail and a good memory when you return home. Warmly recommended!

    What to pay: NRS 250 a couple of years ago.
