Manaslu Circuit

Hi all

I’ll be flying in to Kathmandu on 5/11/2013 and plan to obtain my permits that day, before setting out by bus or jeep depending on costs on 6/11/2013..

This is the end of a 2 month trip in the Himalayas which has seen me in Himachal Pradesh and Sikkim regions of India travelling by bike up to 5,000m. Hopefully I should be reasonably acclimatized by then.

I figured trekking in Nepal would be a fitting finale! I need to be back in Kathmandu by the 21/11/2013 to catch a flight back to Delhi and then onward to the UK so my dates are fairly fixed.

I’ve trekked Annapurna Sanctuary previously but want something a little less touristy and remote, Manaslu looks like the perfect alternative.

It would be great to hook up with someone, I’m 34 year old male currently on a year long trip travelling in mountainous regions. I’d consider myself good company, enjoy the outdoors and figure fitness should be a problem.

Be good to hear from you.

Safe Trekking

  1. If anyone is interested my blog – you can check out what I’ve been up to over the past couple of months.

    I’m hoping to capture some beautiful images of Manaslu along the way.

    Take Care!

  2. Hey Mike,

    I’m in HP now, just getting started. Headed to Rishikish tomorrow.

    MIGHT be able to join you for the Circuit. I’m keen to hike it fairly quickly too. I’m an independent hiker but we need at least 2 people to get our Permits. Once in, we could do what we want. Trek together or independently. Or both.

    I’m looking at other independent options, as well.

  3. Hi,
    We are a french couple and we want to do Manaslu ti avoid the crowd as well.
    We are already in KTM, it would be good to meet up to share the costs.
    Are you already in contact with a guide ?
