Get the Lonely Planet guides. Having used both Lonely Planet and Rough Guides i would now always recommend Lonely Planet. Whilst the rough guides are still good, they don't contain nearly as much practical information as the rough guide.
get the rough guides!!i'm off to india in three months, however i have been planning to go for about 15 years and thus have collected travel guides since i was about 8. my work has a staff of 20 - 19 of which hailing from india (i'm the only aussie) and when i took in my lonely planet guide they laughed and said it was shit. the quote expensive hotels by india standards (even in the budget travel section) and half the places in there have upped their prices or moved to bigger shops after all the publicity lonely planet gave them. lonely planet sucks.

However, I learned that while indeed it is not advisable to drink the water along the mountain trails, there is a safe drinking water initiative in the Annapurnas. Stations supplying this treated water are signed along the way, for instance within restaurants. My guide also told me that locals drink directly from the communal water taps you find in every village. She said these are piped from a source at the top of the mountain, which should be a safe source. However she said sometimes foreigners have issues with this water. I did meet a trekker or two though, who just filled their bottles from this source.
I recommend: When I trekked the to Annapurna Base Camp I brought a Steripen Classic water purifier. It uses UV light to purify water and takes about 60 seconds to work: way faster than waiting 30 minutes for tablets to work or spending 5 minutes using a pump. Buy: MEC | REI.
I had a really bad diarrhoea when I was hiking towards Poon Hill. The diarrhoea, which might be caused by the foods that I ate or the water that I drank, made the whole hiking experience rather unpleasant. At that time, I was lucky to have a friend who brought some medicines with him, including some packets of oral rehydration salts. This helped me to recuperate the next day and I was able to continue the hike, albeit slowly with continuous breaks to toilets.
I recommend: I brought an Adventure Medical Ultralight first aid kit on my trip to Nepal. I like their kits since they come in a water resistant pouch. I always add more stuff to them, like more blister care and bandaids. Buy: MEC | REI. A multi-tool with a knife, pliers and scissors is always handy. I like the Leatherman Wave. Buy: MEC | REI
This is a wonderful guide before heading for any of the treks in Nepal! I was trekking through the Annapurna Base Camp route during the September monsoon season back in 2016. The highlight of our first 4 days was leeches - Throngs and hordes of them. Much screaming daily in the first 2km trek and constantly had our heads pointed looking down for leeches trying to score a quick one my succulent legs rather than enjoying the scenery. I am usually not overly concern with insects, but leeches is a whole new level of disgusting! 2b1af7f3a8
