well, yes i just got my new Backpacker magazine, and it has some interesting information on overseas treks (i'm in the western USA). but lots of the ones that sound interesting are probably loaded with 8/mpd hut-to-hut tourists (not that there's anything wrong with that).
soooo... my question:
if you wanted to fly from san francisco, california and do a trek of 200-500 miles (e.g. 2-4 weeks) somewhere reasonable in the world, able to do it UL-style, where would you go? i'm thinking cheap (minus airfare) with camping possible, 20-25 mpd, minimal kit, lovely scenery, etc.
i know there are many smart, well-travelled folks on here from around the world, so any and all input is welcome.
