In Walking in the Caucasus – Georgia Peter Nasmyth provides us with a comprehensive walker's guide with clear directions, excellent map extracts from Geoland, GPS references, local history/contacts, a whole chapter on birds, flora and fauna, and a superb selection of colour photographs capturing the heart of this little-known walker paradise.

Georgia, set in the heart of the Caucasus, boasts a mountain chain 1200km long between the Black and Caspian Seas that can count six peaks above 5000m, with such spectacular wildlife and landscape comparable to the Alps. The geographical diversity, subtropical wetlands, a Black Sea coast, semi-desert, all peppered with ancient stone towers and an exceptional history make this region a secret walker's paradise.

This guide features 53 walks around 11 different locations, many about one and a half hour’s drive from the capital Tbilisi. They are mostly easy treks that will take you between 1000 and 2500 high, (the highest walk reaching 3200 metres). For each area the author offers an introduction on the history and an overview of the location. For each trek the guide provides clear directions and map extracts plus the Start and Finish Point, Type of Walk (if it is a loop or one way), the Time of the year when is safe to do it, the Length in hours (for average the walker), the Upward Climb in meters, Maximum Elevation reached, grade and the type of markings (mostly unmarked).

Walking in the Caucasus, with its comprehensive directions, maps, informative sections on history and culture, and personal stories, has all the necessary information to enable the modern hikers experience this wonderful and fascinating place.
