5.0 étoiles sur 5 Lui aussi indispensable au voyage au Bhoutan 12 juillet 2014
Livre incontournable pour bien appréhender le Bhoutan. En Anglais...
Très complet, pratique sans tomber dans l'excès d'information.
Je l'ai acheté sur place, en complément du livre de F. Pommaret.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 In the Thunder Dragon Kingdom adorned with sandalwood 13 août 2002
Par Greg Ford - Publié sur
Lonely Planet is unbelieveable! They continually pump out the HIGHEST quality guidebooks, and they've done it again with this edition covering Bhutan. I have spent a good portion of my life researching, and hording information on Bhutan, and have found Lonely Planet's guidebook to contain everything and more that the traveller could ever want...with two exceptions. I think that the lack of the U'cen script in the language chapter is a serious mistake. Lonely Planet has the capacity to print in the U'cen script as they did so in their Tibet edition. My other qualm is with the sparse coverage of the smaller and admittedly FAR less visited dzongkhags (districts) (i.e., Daga, Samdrup Jongkhar, Pema Gatshel, Zhemgang, Tsirang, etc.). Lonely Planet, resolve these issues and your book will be the best it could be.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Again, Lonely Planet got there first - excellent outcome ! 31 décembre 2000
Par Maurizio Giuliano - Publié sur
I have no bounds whatsoever to the Lonely Planet publishing house, other than a deep emotional affection towards their guidebooks. Yet, as a world traveler, I cannot but admire their comprehensive coverage of virtually every corner of the world. Almost every place you could dream of visiting is covered in one or more of their guidebooks. And as one would expect... they also made it to this tiny Himalayan kingdom, where less than 4'000 tourists visit each year. The guidebook is great and contains all you need - plenty of information, data, tips, advice, as well as very well written (actually fascinating !) sections on the local history, culture, religion, architecture, etc. At first impact, the guidebook may prove a little disappointing to you, as it explains that most travelers can only go to Bhutan on a guided tour. But this is not quite what it sounds: a guided tour will be tailored just for you - with only 4'000 tourists a year you won't mind being 'guided'. Since you are likely to be in Bhutan with your own guide, this book may not be an essential tool for travel survival, but it surely is a wonderful tool that will make your stay more enjoyable and fascinating. It will enable you to tell your guide what you want to see, to make your itinerary, etc. It will enable you to choose your preferred hotels or restaurants (to be agreed with your tour operator in Bhutan), and even decide where to do your shopping (the choice in Thimphu consists in two or three superb local markets !). But the most valuable sections are probably those on the local culture, an unspoiled culture where the people practice their faith through millenary religious traditions. The guidebook will tell you things you will want to know about the people, their monasteries, their life ! If you go and don't have it with you, you may regret it. ...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A cut above the rest 22 août 2001
Par J. Marren - Publié sur
If you're thinking of going to Bhutan, be advised there's not a whole lot out there to read in preparation, and of what there is, this guide is one of the best. Tourist travel in Bhutan is strictly controlled, and your itinerary is usually planned in advance, so lots of info on hotels, etc. isn't all that necessary. This guide focuses on history, culture and the life of the people--food, housing, dress. Along with the Passport/Odyssey guide by Pommerat, it's all you need. Have fun!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Lonely Planet Frustrates in Kindle Edition 14 juillet 2010
Par Z. Marta - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Hi. I am actually in Bhutan as I write this. We are a "Lonely Planet" only household and travel consistently throughout the year. But, Lonely Plan for Bhutan on a Kindle is driving me crazy! Often "click on" does not go to the correct section. Maps are too small (even with Aa) to do much good. And you really need color for maps. So, there is still is the great information, but the Kindle edition leaves something to be desired. I am about to go out and buy the paper copy.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 How does this compare to Pommaret's Odyssey Guide? (4.5 stars) 12 mai 2012
Par John L Murphy - Publié sur
Compared to Francoise Pommaret's Odyssey guide, Lonely Planet under the team of Bradley Mayhew, Lindsay Brown, and Anirban Mahapatra for its fourth ed. (2011) looks far more user-friendly. Charts in blue and white leap out, icons direct, sidebars beckon, and the data are chosen for practicality. For instance, Pommaret generally tells what medication to bring; LP tells you specifics in far more detail for what with one limited hospital in a challenging terrain and high altitude can be a daunting journey.

Contrasting, while far fewer color photos entice (a few in the front compared to many in Pommaret-- see my 5/12 review; compare for the pdf versions LP to Gyurme Dorje's "Bhutan Handbook" for Footprint reviewed 12/12), the small size (a half-inch off her guide's size) and compression of information for the day-to-day trekker more than the armchair traveller I confess to being (and at the rise to U.S. $250 per diem from $200 will likely remain indefinitely) do not offer as much a visual feel for the place. Lacking photos and excerpts from past explorers of this Himalayan kingdom, the traveler will not gain from the pages as much of a cultural introduction as the Odyssey travel guide provides in more leisurely narrative fashion. Yet about 40% of this LP guide is given over to non-itinerary information, so it can balance the necessary facts with nature, religion, history, do's and don'ts, and a short glossary of terms, as you'd expect in such a guidebook from a familiar and reliable publishing firm.

I'd opt for both books to take on my imaginary visit, Pommaret to read up on in my lodgings before seeing the sights and LP to take along on the excursions as it's packed with prices, phone numbers, hours places are open (not often perhaps off the main road), and the type of rapidly retrievable data needed on the go. It sounds as if the "low volume, high value" motto leads one to expect that this cultural heartland and wildlife reserve (35% of the land is protected) is less unpopulated than its small native populace may make it seem, oddly, given the limits that its few highways and places to stay in such dramatic settings have to as it were channel visitors into a east-central-west pattern of movement, unless treks take the hardier off the highways, themselves sounding harrowing despite their lovely vistas. This is a less polished and rougher realm to navigate, part of its charm, after all.

These treks, 25 of which are government approved, are emphasized along with mountain bike trails. A chapter details some treks, and the tilt of some of the contents shows an expectation that many visitors will welcome the chance to get outdoors. Of course, festivals held at the many temples, filled with art and color, will invite many visitors to another form of elevation, and these are described too. (See my Dec. 2012 reviews of Bart Jordans' "Bhutan: A Trekker's Guide" and also compare to LP as to coverage and pdf versions Gyurme Dorje's "Bhutan Handbook" for Footprint.)

There's useful summaries of where to stay and eat, naturally. As Bhutan requires a guide (why that per diem tariff is fixed), there's perhaps more give-and-take with a personal guide than on a tour, but both options are presented along with many itineraries fixed into how long one will stay. I finished this still curious about how the guides work with one to plan, or if plans are best made in advance, given what I imagine can be unpredictable challenges with weather, arranging transport, and finding suitable accommodation. "Booking Your Trek" is generally written, when it might have been more focused. It seems that group tours are common and nudge aside individual travelers, reading a bit between the lines, so this guidebook may be more essential than one may imagine if elsewhere. Despite an inevitable generality in this essential, mandatory planning section, certainly nobody visiting this realm could leave without this guide in their backpack.
