    hey Ros, I would love to join u in Mongolia if I had viewed this forum earlier! Have a nice trip and do let me know how ur trip went. I would love to view ur presentation when u are ready.

    best time to trek in Nepal is from Oct to Nov. It is not so cold and less snow so easier to trek. I went in Dec. The amount of snow is horrendous and consequently the avalanche risk. But in Himalayas, you can never be sure about weather as you already know. Just be careful, when it snows for say 2 to 3 days, try not to cross the pass immediately. Let the snow consolidate or melt first then attempt the crossing. Make sure you start early in the morning before the sun melts the snow/ice. once you cross the pass, it is a steep steep drop down (and icy too). A good walking stick will save your knees!

    Enjoy the hotsprings in Tatopani!

    I forgot Ros, if you have time, spend a day or two at Kagbeni after you have crossed the pass. Keeping my fingers "crossed" for you.

    Been to:

    1. Nepal ABC 6-day ABC trek. Backpack. About 4000m
    2. Nepal Panchase Trek (3-4 days) with Country Holidays. 1st time having my SLR/tripod. Peak about 2500m.
    3. Kashmir Himalaya Trek - only have P&S then ... about 4000m
    4. Greek Island hiking - one day job. No camera then.

    Seriously must recommend (2) to first-timer, great photo opportunity. Lazy to convert my Kodak Photo CD to JPEG so only 2 photos: http://www.photo.net/photodb/present...tion_id=254055

    Default training?

    hi, i am doing some stair training almost every sunday morning at bukit timah hill.. if u keen to have some sunday morning exercise together, we can meet up there..

    wat i usually do it carry a light load, go up to the top, do the 'circuit' abt 2-3 times..usually be there abt 9-930am.. on some occassions, i will just hike from bukit timah to mac ritchie or from the hill top, walk to dairyfarm estate and take bus home.. anyone keen, do PM me.. it good to keep in shape n conditions b4 any trips..rather than jst u are abt to plan for some trips then start to train, maybe too rush by then n injure urself..

    prata at opp beauty world or the famous prawn noodles at adman road after the workout is also usually part of the 'training' ..heheh..
