I am a long time lurker, and finally decided to make an account. I have been thinking about making a trip in the next year or two, so I am trying to narrow down some places. I saw on a thread a while back about going to western China, and that has really stuck in my head since it would be more in my budget.
I saw Salewa is doing a lot of contests where they are taking 200 people on trips: newsdailynow.com/2015/11/11/salewa/ Those places have really peaked my interest as well. I have entered, and hopefully have a shot at it. Does anyone have experience at any of the places that they're offering?
I look forward to hearing your responses, and would love any first hand feedback.
My ambition is much less than y'uns. I would like sometime to go to the Vysoke Tatry in Slovakia and areas to the east in the Carpathians in Poland and Slovakia along the Dunajec and Poprad rivers. It seems to be not an extremely popular destination for North Americans even this long after the fall of the Iron Curtain. Any mid-Atlantic folks have experience with this area?
