I like hiking and treks- I've done "rifugio" (mountain hut) treks in Spain, Italy, Austria, Chile and Nepal. I've backpacked with tents in Egypt, Jordan, Israel, India and the U.S.

Lately I've gotten into bouldering.

comment Trek-able peaks in the himalayan range
I was in Ladakh at the base camp for Stok Kangri a few months after doing the EBC. It definitely seemed a more difficult undertaking, a different class of hard. The EBC is touristy and crowded, sure, but has its charms.

Can you add more details to your question? One thing that can help is what kind of trail you're looking for - for example, how long, what time of year, how many days, where you plan on sleeping (especially if you want to avoid campgrounds). That will help people to know whether their proposed route is suitable. Another thing is which resources you've used already to try to find a trail, so people can suggest resources you might not be familiar with.

comment Trekking poles on planes
The security staff at Budapest didn't seem to care about the poles ... but who knows what the next flight will bring?
