Hey guys,
I'm flying to Nepal in October (A.B. Annapurna + C), but it's long, and I can't wait to fly abroad I've been thinking about the preparation.
I'd love to hear ideas for our trekking meets the following requirements:
Some time in the week.
B-huts (want to carry as little as possible)
Price-low. Thought of Eastern Europe, but there is so much information that I lost.
Difficulty level-great shape, like challenging tracks (but not dangerous).
It would be nice if it would be circular.

Also, if anyone is looking for a partner for a style I'd like to hear:)

One week Annapurna preparation? Doubt is enough. Start practice in the evening when it's cooler, look ups and downs and train with a backpack of 8-10 kg of course gradually rather than all at once. Too bad you and come out there with soft or Annapurna.

The Salon after preparation ttamzeni in the country come out in September for a week focused it can do in Spain/France depends on your budget. One proposal, part of a rotating ideal onlevan can sleep in a tent. You can also stay in Chamonix and sleli day.

Basically you can settle at any point, city or village, Italian/French/oiicerim and do day walks.

It's all about price.

I don't need to practice with a backpack, because the hire. Increases I'm training I wanted long:)
Like I said I'm not worried about fitness. Just a year ago I made the Mont Blanc and enjoyed every minute of it, and I'm just dreaming.
As I said-I don't want to stay in a tent, and the places you suggested are quite expensive.

I was thinking of Montenegro. Maybe there is someone there tirk

Helen, I think sirkt hanaporna is one of the best treks are rated in terms of climbing in Nepal.

The height is ranked aggregation and if you do it slow and not difficult Trek. Most guys take Porter (I took and later regretted it). But the Trek itself except for the day before the PAS and PAS did not so steep.

Should also keep the proper acclimatization and taking diamox, ormox if necessary and be nice.

Recommend you consider walking sticks for Nepal, it saves my knees decreases.

Hello Helen

Eons ago (1996 אאל"ט) traveled with my date in the Pirin mountains in Bulgaria I think it can fit your needs (chalets, cheap, gorgeous). Look here in the Forum "and Bulgaria find concatenates Assaf Friedman stroll on RILA mountains in Bulgaria I can help (he also mentions Pirin).

If you want specific information about the route that I did I can try and extract information from rusty memory.

Have fun in Bulgaria and in Nepal

Jonathan.

P.s.
Were you already in Nepal? If not-why chose Trek Annapurna?

Thanks, Bulgaria really sounds like a good idea! Start reading.

This will be my first time in Nepal. Annapurna I, because this is a good introductory course easier than haravend Everest. I consider myself a beginner, because I only did one long trek far, the TMB also, is long enough that you can sew it together with the A.B.C.
I'd love to hear what you think the recommended in Nepal.

Tsnir7 course I used walking sticks:) Why Porter.

Received recommendation about Porter brings New Zealand, contact him before and calibrated with the information he was given to charge higher than normal.

During the Trek, he took us to places that he knew and would sleep wherever we want. He smoked all the time (not cigarettes) and care so that anything other than payment.

If I make the Trek today, I'd take the minimum equipment and walk like, guesthouses, hardly need to carry food, pay for Porter sometimes can be damaged.

Hello Helen

About trekking in Nepal-course each and preferences but in my opinion the Everest base camp Trek + Gokyo was impressive. I traveled in Annapurna circuit (ABC) and Gosaikunda Lake (frozen lakes ") is a short Trek.

The reason for my preference is bterk Everest already from the beginning and throughout the high-altitude Trek (3500 m) and the peaks of Everest surrounds you from all directions along most of the Trek.
Unlike Annapurna, start low (~ 800 m if I remember correctly) and a significant portion from the beginning of the Trek and not end at alpine landscapes. This of course adds to diversity but if mighty snow-capped mountain peaks is your thing, get a bigger dose of Everest.

Two further points that can affect the decision.
1. because of the high starting Everest Trek takes more acclimatization of days. We spent 3 days in the acclimatization of (not straight), most people satisfied with two).
2. Annapurna region are a bit infrastructure. Part of the Trek runs parallel to the road on which passengers (and trucks).

And finally, about Porter.
We hired porters in all our treks in Nepal. The benefits that are obvious but there are also disadvantages (as specified by tsnir7).
If you decide to skip Porter do every effort to relieve yourself (in terms of weight). Walking in these elevations (even if its in great shape) and weight on your back can ruin the experience. The maximum weight of equipment should reach 7-8 pounds as he wrote tsnir7 there is no need to carry food and water needs. Even though not indispensable. If you use a local so it covers a feasible task.

If you're about to hire Porter here are some points to consider.
* Reliability – running stories about porters who stole their equipment and facilities to these and other problems. It is of course extremely rare (if not even about imliot legends) but you should hire a Porter road in Kathmandu or Pokhara. It is better to get recommendations from other travellers.
*-Sometimes the porters not equipped (warm clothing, sunglasses for walking in the snow) and it can limit you. Need to ensure they have the equipment.
*-As specified by tsnir7, the porters have maximum interests about which guesthouse you choose to sleep. Need to understand the reason she didn't desire to hook you and bring you to his friends to back you charge too much or something but simply to have porters and sleeping places their food cheaper because their lower pay all such savings is significant (i.e. in the our Annapurna Porter used to work in the kitchen of guesthouses that stayed to reduce its costs in General, I think this thing is mostly noticeable in other trekking Annapurna has considerably less selection of guesthouses).
You can stream them (solid enough guesthouses standards) and to clarify the issue.
* Weight-it is worth remembering that they total. It is true that supply equipment porters carrying enormous weights (sometimes 60-70 kg) but there's no reason to overload the Porter case. The benchmark was the backpack would be weight so I can carry normal heights.

This is sorry for the long post
Jonathan
