Manaslu Circuit Trek

Hi !

I’m trying to organise my trip to Nepal and will start with Manaslu Circuit (around 17/11, somewhat flexible).
I’m trying to do it on a budget and would prefer to do it without a guide, or share the cost of a guide with someone if I cannot do without it permit wise. I want to start the trek from Jagat (or before) and up to Dharapani, then go up to the Annapurna Circuit trek right after (so technically not making the “loop”).

I’m looking for either :
– a partner to do the hike and find out how to get a permit (I think you can do it without a guide if you are minimum 2 persons).
– a company that will help me get the permit (and I could do it solo or with a partner)
– a company that would sponsor me the permit and the guide in exchange of high quality pictures or pictures for their social media.

I’m an adventure photographer keen to explore remote areas and spend more time taking quality pictures, I’m quite fit and used to hiking, but will not rush through it either. I’ve travelled for a while in Asia before, and Nepal remains as a dream trip for me, and the time has come for me to visit it (for two months in total). I’m a quiet person by nature, but can socialize easily, I’m just not the most talkative exhuberant person. I’m passionate by nature, landscapes, foreign cultures. I’m 33 years old and speak English / French.

Perks of doing with me is that you’ll get sick pictures of your trip !

  1. Hi Jerome,

    I am coming to Nepal in early Nov for a couple months I hope. I was hoping to do a similar route that combines the Manaslu and Annapurna circuits. Have you found other trekkers or are you still looking?


    • Hi Will, no I haven’t found anything yet.
      I’m still looking for either a company that will provide me a permit and worst case scenario a guide. I’ve heard you can do it without a guide but at least two person have to be registered

  2. Starting the Manaslu Circuit on 11th November from KTM with a long term Nepalese friend who is a registered trekking guide. You would be more than welcome to join us. It’s a pay as you go trip with the only shared cost of Binod’s fee’s. No better way to complete a trek cost wise. I too take many photo’s and will be carrying my trusty Canon 5D MK4. If this trip works for you then please get in touch. Regards, Jason

    • Replied in your inbox, thanks !

  3. Hello! Me I will be in the area, but probably more oriented to upper Mustang

    • But you’d still have to do a portion of Annapurna before reaching Mustang right ? Do you have any plans to have a detour by Manaslu ? 🙂
