Guidebook to 30 walks and 3 treks centred on Zagori and Konitsa in mainland Greece. From easy strolls to demanding hikes along remote mountainous traverses, including the rugged peaks of Mt Timfi and Mt Smolikas in the Pindos range, Drakolimni Lake, and the dramatic Vikos Gorge. With background information on architecture, history and wildlife. Zagori in Greece's Northern Pindos National Park is among the last relatively undiscovered and unspoilt hiking destinations in Europe. This guide presents a selection of thirty walks and three short treks showcasing the region's captivating scenery, from dramatic gorges to mystical forests, crystal-clear turquoise rivers, rugged alpine peaks and characterful mountain villages. Routes vary from easy walks on clear paths to strenuous ascents and mountain traverses, meaning that there is something to suit most ambitions and abilities. Clear mapping accompanies the route description, and the introduction to the guide covers all the practicalities, including getting to Zagori, accommodation, equipment, maps and safety. There is also a wealth of information about the region's rich history, architecture, geology, plants and wildlife, as well as fascinating notes on points of interest encountered on route.

For a long time the Costa Blanca has had a reputation for having the best chance of winter sun, the cheapest flights and the most reasonably priced accommodation. However, the 'white coast' has a lot more to offer than the simple beach holidays enjoyed by thousands of tourists every year. Not only the spectacular and varied mountains close to the coast, but also the marvellous spring blossom and warm autumn days have attracted walkers and climbers from all over Europe for decades. High barren mountains and their series of steep ridges contrast with fertile garden landscapes and widespread fruit plantations on the coast. Gill Round, who lives in the Costa Blanca and has guided walks there for some years, introduces 51 particularly interesting routes which also savour details of the cultural history and reveal culinary delights. This guide provides a reliable companion for unforgettable days in spectacular natural environments - for short trips near to large holiday resorts, as well as more challenging summit ascents in the remote mountain countryside of Alicante province. The selection ranges from leisurely strolls along the coast, to pleasantly cool rambles along rivers and gorges, to mountain walks with stunning views. Every walk contains a fact-file of all the important information, a detailed walk description, a small map showing the line of the route and an easy-to-read height profile. The numerous colour photos give you an excellent insight into the landscape characteristics of all the walks. The present edition has been totally revised. Every route is provided with comprehensive GPS data, ready for download.

Enhanced trekking details and maps are included, along with more detailed practical information than any other guidebook and an expanded language section. Travelling to and entering Tajikistan is easier than ever before with improved transport infrastructure and a new airport terminal in the capital, Dushanbe. Accommodation options in the capital have also improved with new high-end hotels now open for business. This new edition includes details of all such changes and improvements. With this guide you can explore the Tajik side of the Wakhan Corridor, complete with fortresses, petroglyphs, and stunning views of the Pamirs and Hindu Kush. Also covered are the Fann Mountains, easily the most accessible - and one of the most beautiful - mountain ranges in Tajikistan, the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Sarazm and the Tajik National Park, the hot springs of Garm Chasma, and the Tajikistan section (which forms the majority) of the Pamir Highway, arguably the most spectacular drive in the world. Epic mountain landscapes, glacial lakes, and the mighty Amu Darya - the Oxus River of antiquity - encircle ancient Buddhist sites, Silk Road trading posts, medieval shrines, and planned Soviet cities alike. The modern population continues to draw upon its diverse heritage from Persia, China, Afghanistan and Russia, creating a complex and intriguing culture waiting to be discovered. With first-hand descriptions of everything from Sogdian ruins to playing the traditional sport of buz kashi, trekking on the Murghab Plateau and eating shashlik in garden tea houses, Tajikistan's expert authors bring the country alive in Bradt's new and fully updated edition.

Languedoc-Roussillon : cette pointe à l'extrême sud de la France entre les Cévennes méridionales et les Pyrénées orientales, dans le triangle formé par les villes de Montpellier, Carcassonne et Perpignan, possède un charme bien particulier. Un paysage d'une riche diversité, une région toute en contrastes : du Pic du Canigou, l'un des premiers sommets du monde à avoir été gravi, jusqu'à la Côte Vermeille, magnifiques et radieux contreforts des Pyrénées plongeant dans la Méditerranée. Daniel Anker, l'un des plus célèbres auteurs d'ouvrages sur la montagne et journaliste alpin de Suisse, décrit dans ce guide de randonnées avec Jacques Maubé, qui connaît très bien cette région, 50 randonnées douces à «pimentées». Genêts et pins, étroits chemins muletiers et larges chaussées, la terre rouge au Lac du Salagou et la voûte bleue du ciel audessus du paradis granitique du Caroux : tout est là pour les randonneurs, qu'ils préfèrent se promener tranquillement sur la plage ou se lancer à l'assaut de sommets. Vous déboucherez sur le Pic Saint-Loup un « vin de sommet », vous plongerez dans les gorges de Minerve et de Carança, vous admirerez les vignobles de Saint-Chinian et des Corbières, vous ferez un pèlerinage jusqu'aux fiers châteaux des Cathares et aux cathédrales, vous flânerez le long du Canal du Midi et de la Côte Vermeille, vous vous baignerez dans les eaux glacées des lacs de montagne des Pyrénées orientales et dans celles, salées de l'Etang du Doule en bordure de la Méditerranée : le Languedoc et le Roussillon sont une source inépuisable de trésors pour les amateurs de randonnée. Les descriptions précises des randonnées sont illustrées par de nombreuses et belles photos en couleurs, complétées par des cartes sur lesquelles figure le tracé des itinéraires et accompagnées de profils d'altitude très informatifs. S'ajoutent à cela de nombreux conseils concernant les sites ou les curiosités à visiter ainsi que les possibilités de combinaison de randonnées.
