Manaslu and Tsum Valley

I have a planned the Manaslu Citcuit and Tsum Vally Trek leaving KTM March 1. I have around 25 days in mind (including several sidetrips). Have to back in KTM March 29 because of my flight back. I plan to take the bus to Gorkha and start trekking either in Baluwa or Barpak. I already have arranged a guide/porter. I am looking for a 2nd person because of the fact that you need 2 people to get permits. Last your I did Jiri-Lukla, Three Passes and a few days direction Tumlingtar, the year before EBC. So of you are interested…

  1. Hello Gerard,
    I am planning to arrive in KTM in the first week of March.
    I think I will begin with Manaslu Circuit, maybe including Tsum Valley,
    …then …where the Manaslu Circuit meets the Annapurna Circuit in Dharapani, I will continue the Annapurna Circuit. … including Tilicho and several other side treks. …afterwards maybe Kopra Danda and Himal Mardi Trek …. I have about 2 months time.

    I like to get in contact with you … maybe have a phone call.
    I am in the same situation like you, I would like to have a 2 person for sharing costs of permit/etc.

    It might be possible that I can fly a little bit earlier to KTM to join you. …the flight is not booked yet 😉

    I have done Annapurna Circuit 3 times so far:
    2016-Nov/Dec, 2017-July, 2017-Nov/Dec
    (always without porter or guide)

    regards, Harald …from Austria
