Bhutan: A trekker's guide by Bart Jordans describes 27 treks of between 2 and 24 days in length, offering a unique perspective to trekking in Bhutan. A thorough introduction offers advice on preparation and fitness for travel to Bhutan, when to go and how to get there, as well as the people and culture of this country. The guide includes all the dramatic trails, accompanied by detailed route descriptions and full information on preparation, health issues, permits and local culture and how to ensure a minimum-impact trek

At 28,169ft (85886m) Kangchenjunga in far north-eastern Nepal is the world's third highest peak. It's a huge, spectacular mountain with five tops and five glaciers dominating a spur from the main Himalayan axis. The trek to its base via the Nepalese foothills has been describing quite simply as The Most Beautiful Walk in the World.This book is a guide to that trek. It describes the trails, villages and views, gives a potted history of some of the mountains, and adds background interest for anyone planning a visit to the area. It's a sparsely populated region with a greater sense of isolation than in more populated areas of Nepal. The trails are rougher, the facilities more primitive and the routes less well defined, offering a different kind of experience to that of the more mainstream routes and with the undisputed scenic grandeur for which Nepal is famous.

It's a quite outdated (1999) but the route descriptions are very good. I'll supplement this with the Lonely Planet Nepal Trekking guide plus the Lonely Planet website forum discussions

Kev has written some of my favourite trekking guidebooks, including Annapurna, Manaslu, Everest, and this one on Kangchenjunga. I used this book for my trek to Kangchenjunga North and South Base Camps in 2004.

He describes the routes both in words and photos to both North and South Base Camps, giving good descriptions of the villages along the way. I've even learned that the timings he gives for each trek segment is exactly the time it takes me.

I'm doing research for an upcoming trek to Nepal in the north-east, Kanchenjunga mountain area. I have gone through this book and its excellent. The maps are detailed and the photos quite amazing. (I would have loved to have seen more)The lay out of possible options is not entirely the way that I'm going, but I ended up reading one chapter before another for my purposes, which is no big deal. My only criticism of this book is the fact that it is quite dated being from 1999. A lot has happened in Nepal since that time and a more up to date guide would be an asset. However, given this is pretty much the only guide I've found, I'm truly grateful for there at least being something that I'm able to use.
Nothing personal
Kanchenjunga is a jewel of Nepal, the country it probably was some 10 years ago. Kev did a fantastic work as it is the only guidebook of this area. A little out of date but trails didn't change that much, just a few more houses in Ghunsa and Khambachen. My 2011 Kanchenjunga photobook availabale at Blurb.com : "Kanchenjunga, into the five treasuries of snow" .
