I upload here any questions received in private message, and I told them in detail, I thought it might be nice to bring it here for the rule:

"Ayalon,
We're a couple of travellers who work on Alta via 2 convince them to do the Trek as well and we are starting to go to August 5.
A few questions if I may.

You can buy also maps Austria huts?

How to get from Munich to the trailhead? How long does it take?

We have 14-15 days net. We have experienced very long treks across the globe. Walk with full equipment and sleep on the ground. Do you think we can do all this for?

One last question, how cold it is. The enrollment need of minus ten, those temperatures? The tents in the valleys or heights? "


Hi there,

Nice to hear that you are planning to travel. Unfortunately we are now without such programs for the summer, so I'd like to dream with you:)

About your questions:

In General make a separation between the first part first in Austria, then moving to Italy but not yet in the Dolomites, and the second part-the Alta via 2. The main difference between the two parts is much much more bdolomits of Tawil and neater, more accessible and more flexible. Naturally as more people have more cabins, the path more clearly, there are more options how to proceed or if you want to crop, etc., it creates a little reverse that situation at first when some are confused and don't know how it all works-conditions less comfortable than the rest, but it's not bad.

Now for this purpose – in principle, these cabins are designed for travellers and therefore likely to find relevant map each cabin in the Austrian part. The point is that the Austrian part significantly less mtweir than other areas and therefore there is less padding and less wrong. Some think that some barely met people so if you're stuck without a map — even difficult to build on help from other travellers. I suggest not misunderstandings about it. As I recall there is a bookstore in Munich airport which also maps. I got maps of southern Germany and have the relevant map. Anyway maybe worth to search in the Web store to call to ask if they have it or not – to buy there. If you don't find there in Innsbruck there informiion point station (also, there's a good chance his the map) and can help you find something.

From Munich to the trailhead: you land at the airport and going to informiion of the prominent position it much as near the escalators that descend to the bottom-you can't miss and Max you ask. Ask for train tickets to Innsbruck, such has how many times a day you can already check the country hours and get organized. Basically to get a train travelling on the subway in the direction of Munich placed down in Munich East-East ("ust") and change the train to Innsbruck. Munich train takes about 40 minutes.
The train to Innsbruck is kind of tedious little train that takes her about 3 hours (as I recall). After 3 hours, you reach the center of Innsbruck. As you exit the train station informiion. Move there and map of the city and some help that sure will be confused. I don't know how you experienced in European tour, it was the first book and found that most standalone and online search-simple search for wherever the tourist come informiion. They are arranged, they speak English and can help just whatever you need. (Where there is an author, when it is open, take them to bus schedules, asked them for help finding a place to sleep at a price that suits you)
Basically, to get to the trailhead has a large cable car on the mountain in the South (he prominently visible from town, I think). Can't remember his name, but it's a half hour bus ride from the city centre. Find out where and when you have informiion this bus and cable car running because it's not obvious that it will work when you want.

In terms of sleeping in Innsbruck: If you want your tent worth to me to take the bus to the cable car also if only the next day. Downtown is not so nice to open the tent and begins with a cable machine, a village in the outskirts of the city, so there will feel more comfortable. What we did was take a short bus to "camping site" on the edge of town. Basically, these sites are marked on all hiking maps of the red tent (also know to tell you about these places in informiion), and their advantage is that it's cheap, open space and toilet tent, showers and more bullshit. If you have more Innsbruck overall very central city (perhaps even the provincial capital ") can then be worth you relax a little, that settled there, spinning only the next morning to begin the journey.

Weather: cold, we didn't have any, but you must be prepared at the best level. He sure catches you at some point and then if you have the equipment you need-it. If you plan-it must be waterproof rain (very resistant crap like a landscape) or head down the idea of a tent that definitely catches you on some nights.
In General, the rain is causing the hardest on this trip because he can go for a few days or that it was dangerous to go (rare) or not, but just sucks. Be flexible with this thing because it can happen so not moping. Total us most of the time was great although hereafter Defragmenter every day to become wet, so it's a good idea to plan your days so towards evening come to a haven. The entire trip was one weekend just got a storm and then on Sunday when we wanted to go for a walk-we were told that there was a serious avalanche that blocked the road and the area closed so we had to cut a few days off (bus traveled South instead of going through the mountains). Tip to find out about weather-every day you pass/cabins sleeping next to them what they forecast is updated for every situation. Many times very weather varies during the day (starting Sun over rain and vice versa) and to be prepared.

Where to camp: it is a matter of each character what he loves, we tried to establish the tent rather close to civilization as we could have. We trekked with tent especially budget considerations and are ideology of catching alone. Like I wrote were a few rainy nights and then to be close to good roof if you really get in a storm or a hot chocolate before going to bed. In fact, when we were near cabins in der asked them to open the tent around them, were mostly Italy places on the mountains the only places worth tent they erected a hut where too. This also be flexible if you disagree. sleeping in the cabin that night or continue a bit further. In terms of mountain or Valley — usually there's not much flexibility in terms of mountain or Valley. Or you end the day on the mountain or finish it down the Valley. When you raise is equal to some shelter from the wind, most importantly pay attention not to the lowest point in around that if it rains on your stream in a tent passes (of course it:).) In populated areas was nice to sleep in trailer parks there, brethren generally nice people. When we looked for extra-wanted camping site organized it really worth the money it costs and where all it takes to really rejuvenate and refresh you. Almost every town has such sites and because of the nature of the trip we did more for us to be in a place like this sex and camp trailers – which really hotels (much cheaper).

Length of trip: I actually don't really remember how many days it took us exactly, and when you say 14-15 days-the question is if it's all the time or that after deducting the days?
We made a break from Friday around noon until Sunday because we keep the Sabbath, and generally cut into town close on Tuesdays around tonight to obtain food and went to go Wednesday morning. Total travel this orbit less than 2 weeks but I don't recall a few days trip actually had a name.
Anyway, for the last three days of the Alta via get to feltre (really, at the end of the Trek) you can give for the simple reason that we're there 24 hours in more than half a metre before seen, and when we read in the book that he warns that because of topographical structure there is a very common phenomenon in this season so I think in advance can give instead of moping. Also the end of the Trek is a great celebration. I fantasized about some place full of people celebrating the end of the Trek, what actually arrived at a cabin there turn with few people and was there seems to be great excitement from the end of the journey as we thought. Probably most people don't do at all.
If you decide you need to trim more, there are several options. Or skip the first part, or hop in Italy a few days saving and promote you to Alta via 2. I very much recommend scheduled pauses. Although we are forced because Saturday but even if you live that some trips played at some point, especially if you have to be totally independent in matters of food and sleep is tinkering that takes a lot of energy in relation to those who simply came to a hut at the end of the day, a few Bob on the table, the food that someone cooked for him and goes to bed without worries of rain. (Don't let me suck you-it was great!).

Important tip: do the membership. It gives 50% discount on most cabins so after 3 nights returns the cost (costs about $ 150 per word). We haven't done and regretted it.

So I won't forget (although not asked)-hardly a circular trip. Assuming that having both the return flight from Munich it takes you about a day to make your way back. A very simple transport-big train taking you to Innsbruck goes away then South to Italy, so all you have to do is catch it at some point and get her back north but it takes time that it should be taken into account. If I remember correctly we halfway one day and then a half early the next day.
If you have not yet ordered tickets, worth considering return to Northern Italy and from Munich. On the one hand, it sure cost you more to do the cheapest round-trip flights from the same destination, but also the long trains cost a lot (of EUR 100 per person, if I remember correctly, it is possible to check prices online in the website) so maybe it is already approaching the difference and saves the return trip.

Have fun, it's a great trip

Raises this kind of thread (haov:

To get an impression of the difficulty on this track, especially in the first two parts, I would be happy if anyone knows and can write how he compared to TMB

Thank you!

How is in difficulty or of beauty?
Is harder than TMB and much much much much less crowded.
I define it as an extreme route.
In terms of beauty. Both are very beautiful.

Hello!
Are we supposed to trek a day in the near future (:
My question is what is the best way to understand what the weather in the mountains for a few days?
I guess the standard forecast sites don't give that answer and dedicated sites.
Thank you very much.
Yair
