Manaslu and Ganesh Himal

Hi there,

Me and my boyfriend are planning a trip to Nepal. We arrive 2th of October and fly back the 19th. We are planning to do the manaslu circuit trek. Unfortunately the Tsum valley will be too crammed to fit in our schedule. We are already talking to a guide recommended to us and we are looking for a few fellow trekkers to join us. We are not super experienced trekkers but did a trek in Peru without any troubles with the altitude.

  1. Hi I have trekked in Peru and Nepal before and am interested to do a solo trek and would prefer to do the Manaslu trek. Since its not possible without a guide and partner I was wondering if you would be interested to share the cost of your guide. Once past the necessary checkpoints I’m happy to go my own way as I would also need to complete the circuit in 14 days.
    Let me know if you are interested. Thank you!

    • Hi, I will do solo trek in Manaslu from Oct 4-18, I’m looking for atleast 1 person to be able to get the special Manaslu permit, I contacted my previous agent for a guide and everything when I did the Annapurna Circuit way back 2015. Let me know if you are interested and ok with the dates

    • Hi.I am arriving on the 2nd to Kathmandu and would like to start the trek on the 4th. Are you arriving on the 4th or are you starting the trek on the 4th?

    • Hey Mark, Are you still looking for a partner? I’m aiming to start the trek on October 3rd or 4th as well.


  2. I’ll arrive in Kathmandu on 2-Oct then get the special permit on 3-Oct, but I need to go in Pokhara because my previous agent is based in Pokhara but maybe I can request to get the permit in Kathmandu if you prefer there. Start 4-Oct End 18-Oct.
    I will only hire a guide w/out porter, the accommodation and etc will be fix by the agent, they qoute me around USD 998.29 but the price will vary or decrease if somebody will join me.
    Let me know your thoughts.

  3. Hello!

    Are you still looking for people to join the Mansalu trek? I’m a solo trekker and I’m very experienced with long distance trekking.

    Are you still aiming for an October 3rd start? I arrive on October 1st.


    • Hi,

      It’s not possible to start on Oct 3 ‘coz it’s holiday in Nepal from Sept 28 til Oct 2, it means you cannot get the Manaslu permi. Permit can only apply on Oct 3 or 4 çoz Oct 5 is holiday again.
