The guides
Trailblazer guidebooks are strong on practical information but do not neglect the cultural background. They give you all the best accommodation and eating options and also advise on what's worth seeing and what's better to avoid.

The books tell you how to get there, what to pack and what to read before you go. There is comprehensive background information on history, climate, food, and the people. Detailed sections are included on the environment, particularly in the trekking guides, each of which has a detailed Minimum Impact Trekking chapter.

The mapping
Trailblazer firmly believe that a good guidebook must have good maps, specifically tailored to the reader's needs. For thier walking and trekking guides they create thier own maps to the most useful scale and showing the kind of information such as walking times and places to stay or eat, not usually found on maps.
