About the author (2010)

Joe made his first trip to Nepal as a fresh-faced backpacker in the early 1990s and something clicked. Since then, he's been back numerous times to walk the trekking trails of the Khumbu and explore the Kathmandu Valley by rented motorcycle. His favourite moment while researching this book was climbing the 5420m Cho La pass on a blanket of freshly fallen snow. The lowlight was having emergency root canal surgery after cracking a tooth on a tough piece of buffalo jerky. When not researching guidebooks for Lonely Planet, Joe lives in London with a growing collection of Buddhist paraphernalia picked up on his travels.
