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 Ladies has been kept clean all night by a woman attendant hurling buckets of water over the lavatories and whoever is using them at the time. She hands me some paper, studies me cleaning my teeth and folds my last rupee in the tip of her sari. I am putting on my lipstick when screams in the Transit Hall indicate Air India Flight 101 is finally leaving for London…"

Christine Osborne from Home on a Wing and a Wave, an account of
a journey home from Goa published in Montage Magazine, 1999.
