Trekking & Mountaineering

I am going to do the Annapurna Sanctuary trek and was thinking of starting walking from Pokhara, staying in Sarangkot the first night, then walking on to Naudanda and then to Dhampus for the second night and then going up to Annapurna Base Camp via Chomrong. Has anybody done something like this and do you think it's a good idea?
A buddy and I were planning on trekking somewhere in europe this winter from around december 20th to december 28th. We are looking at the Kungsleden trail in northern sweden however I was wondering if anyone would have some other ideas for a week long hike during the winter.
Also, we are planning on camping, not staying in huts or cabins. I would also really like to try cross-country skiing however we would have to rent the equipment. If anyone has any ideas, I would appreciate some help.

I was planning to do the Poon Hill trek until I discovered about the relatively new trek, the annanpurna-dhaulagiri community trail. Heard that the views along this trek are breathtaking and more discovery with the nepalese culture.
Though i'm very interested in doing this trek, could not find much info over the internet about it. Is anyone familiar with this trek?
appreciate any tips and info.
many thanks in advance!
I am planning a trek to Snow lake Biafo Glacier over the Hispar la and Hispar valley next July with a highly recommended Pakistani guide. To make the trip worthwhile for the guide and cost-effective for me, I would be interested in joining more people who are in good shape, upbeat, adventurous, enjoy the beauty of Nature, and are generally fun to be around. To acclimatize properly and do it right, plan on at least 3 weeks leaving sometime between July 13-18, 2013. Thanks in advance
I'll be going to Nepal in early February next year and I'm planning to do the Poon Hill Trek.
Need some advise on how the weather is expected to be around that time and what kind of clothing is advisable to be worn, i.e. how cold would it be, would I be expecting any snow still etc.
Also, would I be needing a proper pair of hiking boots for this trek or a pair of sneakers (running shoes) would be okay too.
Im 27yo m from uk- As the title says im looking for people to trek with to EBC. Im trying to do it as cheap as possible over 13/14 days. Would be ok with splitting the cost of a guide tho if you really wanted to hire one.
im in katmandu now so if you are looking for a trekking partner for around the 17th/ 18th send me a message!

I am planning to be one year off in 2014...travelling seeking skimountaineering spots (or also alpine climbing spots)!
I have a rough plan that starts from :
Austria in January....
over to Swiss/French Alp in Feburary/March...
then heading for Turkey´s Ararat and Iran´s Ararat...
afterwards direction Elbrus in Russia
then maybe Nepal...
All the trips I cannot do alone - I need at least one reliable partner in each place (or also one for the whole trip...)
Does anyone have an idea how this could be organized? Is anybody interested?
I am after a small but accurate thermometer that I can use for temperatures below minus 20C whilst trekking in Nepal. Any recommendations?
Me and my boyfriend will be in North Thailand around the 1st week of December and plan to do a trekking tour (probs the hill tribe trek? not something we'd do alone but with a guide and group)
What footwear is best? Could we get away with a pair of trainers? I'm not sure what the weather will be like this time of year but if people advise a certain type of footwear I'd need to purchase in the UK as I need specialist footwear and couldn't risk the quality buying elsewhere as I blister/ache even when I'm near a bad pair of shoes!
Would a pair of sturdy hi top trainers be ok as these would provide ankle support? Or would I need something with grips!? I'm not sure its only going to be a day or 2 at a time I'd need them but any advice be great ta :)
So what do people think?
We do plan going to other countries after where we might do more treks / jungle treks but we'll be out f... more »
I am doing the Annapurna cirtcuit in a few weeks (mid December) and am in desperate need of recommendations on some reliable stores in Kathmandu to rent trekking gear from? Any suggestion from experience on this trek on what I should pack would also be great!
How crowded is the 5 day Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu? I understand crowded is a relative term -- how many other groups/people do you see during the days? Will you pasa a few group for a couple of minutes, but otherwise hike with only your own group, or is it more constant? How many other groups/people are within sight/sound of camp sites?

I have two weeks in january where I will be between trip in 2 trip in asia on my own, I dont really know what to do so I thought it would be nice to do a 5-7 night trek somewhere in the region adn then explore the area around there.. Ive done a bit of trekking but Im not looking for anything to challenging this time.
Does anyone have any treks to recomend that would be good for that time of the year, not to hot, to cold,too rainy
Am looking into the possibility of doing the Chadar trek in January 2013.
If anyone has any experience or can recommend an agency they've been with i'd appreciate it.
Also if anyone else is interested in joining me then let me know.
My son & I will be in Garmisch-Partenkirchen on November 8 & 9. What are the chances of summiting Zugspitze at this time of the year? Is there already too much snow to hike/climb all the way up? Can we go half way and then be able to catch the train or cable the rest of the way up?
