  1. Hi Dustin, check I send an enquiry to join the organized trek starting on the 16th of November. I received an answer from Pradeep, who send me two pdf files regarding costs and booking information. At the moment one person has booked this trek. The more we are the less the costs. Maybe you are interested? Best regards Pascal

  2. Hi Dustin,
    I’m in Nepal from 10 Nov to 1 Dec and very interested in the Manaslu Circuit, ideally with just a guide – no porters. In the last four years, I’ve hiked the Annapurna Circuit, Everest/Gokyo and Langtang/Gosainkund so am reasonably experienced. Do you have a guide ?

    • I don’t have a guide as of yet. I intended to find a guide and permits upon arrival. I’ve another person interested in joining in as well. The more the merrier.

  3. Hi Dustin,
    I’ve found a company who can provide a guide for USD $18 per day plus bus fare – that’s a price for the group not per person. It includes the guide’s expenses, his salary and insurance.
    If you’re interested, I can copy you on the email exchange. And do you know where you’re staying in Kathmandu ?

  4. Hi Dustin, in case you would reconsider departing on the 16th or 17th, I would be interested in joining. I am looking at lodge trekking and/or homestays, either Manaslu circuit or Tsum valley as both will be too much for 2 weeks. Let me know if that may be an option. Regards, Maja
