Torres del Paine and Walking in Croatia, by Rudolf Abrahams

torres_del_paine.jpgRudolph’s latest book would also be a welcome gift for anyone who loves the great outdoors. Torres del Paine (Cicerone, £15) is the complete guide to trekking in Chile’s premier National Park, covering the southern tip of the Andes in Chile and Patagonia with the emphasis on low-impact trekking. Routes include the Torres del Paine itself (10-11 days) as well as a half circuit and other day treks.

There is information on mountain refuges and how to link the routes together, with advice on when to travel as well as safety factors and technical difficulty. Must-see attractions include the magnificent granite spires of the ‘towers’ or torres, vast glaciers and unspoilt forests beneath cloud-streaked skies.

Purchase from Amazon.

Also from Rudolph this summer is the second edition of another guidebook in the same series, Walking in Croatia, which covers mountain walking and trekking in the Dinaric Alps, Istria, Slavonia and around Zagreb (Cicerone, £14).

“The Durban Beachfront lends new meaning to the word ‘garish’. Not only is it painted in the brightest and gaudiest of colours that would make Gaudí himself salivate, but it is also populated by Zulu rickshaw drivers, each one resembling a small carnival float, dressed in a plethora of animal tails, bird feathers and orchidaceous headgear no respectable drag queen would ever dare to don.”

John Malathronas, Rainbow Diary: A Journey in the New South Africa, (Summersdale, 2005)
