Manaslu Circuit Trek
I am hoping to trek the Manaslu Circuit in November 2021 and I am looking for trekking partner(s) as a minimum of 2 persons is required for the permits. A guide is also required. I would be open to hiring a porter as well. My plan is to arrive in Kathmandu the morning of November 7th and get a ride to the trailhead on November 8th or 9th. I am also considering to add the Nar Phu trek, which is an additional six days, and also requires a special permit if others are interested in that portion as well.
A rough outline would be as follows:
November 8: Drive to Soti Khola
Nov 9 – 18: Trekking increasing in elevation with acclimatization stops as necessary
November 19: Trek over Larkya La Pass
November 21: Enter Annapurna Conversation Area to continue on to Nar Phu Valley or return to Kathmandu (this portion is flexible) in a couple days.
I am a 37 year-old from Canada. I hiked the Annapurna Circuit over Thorong La Pass in 2019 so I have some limited experience trekking at high altitude.
Please let me know if you have any interest in joining. And please let me know if you have any questions!
