Reservation needed for reguges in September?


Posted: Wed, Aug 16, 2017, 14:21

Hi everybody,

Does someone know if it is really necessary to book all the refuges in advance beginning September for one person? I'm planning on booking the first few days so I'm a bit more flexible during the trek. Does anyone have experience with just showing up?

Thank you!

Hi Alexandra,
even in the middle of August most of the refuges were often empty - mostly because people fear bedbugs (which I once did see in person, so they are there). In September there are less people on the trek, but it is colder, so I guess more also would want to sleep indoors.

I will go in Sept and even having booked the refuges, I prefer to sleep outside, cause of the bedbugs. I will ask it for the guardians.

Hi Doreen & Isabel,

Thanks for the replies! Sounds like the bedbugs and me are gonna have quite a private party then ;)
