Manaslu Circuit Trek

Hello Guys, I have a guy from Italy, he is 41 years old, fit, very friendly, second time visiting Nepal and willing to trek untouched Manaslu Tsum valley 20 days from 15/16th of October. He arrives 14th of October. As you know Manaslu Region need at least 2 trekkers in a group to obtain trekking permits and trek, your company will be much appreciated. Just to keep it simple, we would like to have small group 2-4 trekkers maximum only. So the space is limited.

Also it would be nice to have your company to exchange our experience each other, share trekking cost and collect unforgettable lifetime experience during the Himalaya. He has already confirmed a porter which you can also share if needed. A porter makes you massive difference in term of enjoying with stunning Himalaya surroundings without carrying burden of kilos and let you extra confidence to achieve the final destination. Also this is the best way of supporting directly to local people. But if you prefer without porter which is also no problem. Everything is quite flexible and negotiable.

Just to let you know that we are Manaslu local team and specialized. For more detail please feel free visit us right here

  1. Hi everybody, I’m the confirmed trekker :-).
    I’ve found Rajesh looking at Trip Advisor best 10 and he was the most detailed in replying my emails, giving a complete itinerary which was also flexible.
    I’ve already confirmed and if nobody joins I’ll go alone with guide and trekker. After EBC I was looking at a long trek in a more remote zone ad the option to visit Tsum Valley is not to be missed, as I’ve read (even though there are very very few trip reports, apart from some incredibly green pictures).
    The rest of Manaslu is, as they told, the perfect alternative to AC, or as it was some years before. And if the cost is a more basic accomodation, it’s worth it.
    If you want to join and share you are welcome.
    Bye. Stefano.

    • Hey Rajesh and Stefano, thinking about hiking this trail at around this time. If your still looking for people feel free to message and see if our plans match. I’ll have a better idea of dates next week.
