Hi, I would love to do the Manaslu Circuit and if there is time Tsum Valley as well. I am looking for some travel partners to join me. I’ve done some treks in Nepal before (like Langtang and Gokyo) so I know a bit what to expect. I plan to leave around 2 October. If anybody isinterested to join, please let me know!

  1. Hello!

  2. Hello Elisabeth.

  3. Hi Jorge,
    thanks for responding! The Manaslu Circuit can be done as a teahouse trek, and if done at easy pace with a side-trip day and the necessary acclimatisation days can be done in about 20 days. The reports whether a guide is mandatory or not, are mixed. So far I never had one on a trip but I would’not mind hiring one if it is mandatory. First day is the bus to Arughat Bazar, and from there on it starts! I heard so many good stories on this trip that I would like to see it myself now 😉
    I arrive in Kathmandu at 30 September.

  4. Hello Roman,

    I know, Manaslu is not the most popular trek, and this while it is said to be so beautiful!
    I plan to trek unarranged, so there’s not fixed dates or prices. I might ask a guide to join though, if it is required. I hope to leave Kathmandu for Arughat Bazar around 2 October. Are you planning to stay in Pokhara or are you travelling to Kathmandu first?

  6. Hi Elisabeth/Roman,
    I arrived in Kathmandu today and consider doing the Manasulu trek myself. Date wise it would fit. So when you guys are in Kathmandu too let’s meet up ….

  8. Hi Elisabeth,

    I’ve got a glimpse of your message, but now it’s gone… Anyway…
    It’s my third time in Nepal. First time round it was an organised trip with a bit of everything. Second time I did the jiri gokyo ebc trek, otherwise I’d a bit of trekking in the Alps, Atlas …
    What else I’m German, 38 years, currently live and work (architect) in düsseldorf.
    You wanted to meet at the KTG on Monday 2pm?
    See you there.
    In case I won’t make it I’ll let you know

  9. Hey Elisabeth ,

    all the best

  10. Hi Bea,

    In the short time you had to read the PM I wrote you (where to meet) you misunderstood the time. I have sent you a new one to correct this.

    We will see you on Monday! Greetings, Elisabeth

  11. Hi Felix,
