LP Nepal guides updated after earthquake

Lonely Planet is revising its two Nepal travel guides in light of the devastating earthquakes in April.

Nepal (£17.99) and Trekking in the Nepal Himalaya (£14.99) will be reissued in December. Joe Bindloss, LP’s destination editor covering Nepal, said: “We wanted to get the revised books into the market quickly so that people thinking of coming to Nepal would be able to make an informed decision about whether or not to travel.”

The books were updated with the help of local journalists, including Nepali writers, aid organisations and earthquake surveyors, and include information about damage to monuments, trekking routes and infrastructure.

Bindloss added: “Our belief is that Lonely Planet and other travel content producers can make a major contribution to the recovery in Nepal by encouraging travellers to return and spend money in the local economy.”
