  1. Hi,
    is your trek still exist? any idea of the cost to complete the trek?
    i should be with other group to ACT, but unfortunately, i was waiting for a friend respond who want to join the trek and couldnt do it in the end and i missed the group :'( .
    anyway i will like to join you if the trip still exist, and i hope its a Shoestring trip, as im planning after the trip to go Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Burma so i have to be on budget in every things to make it happen. Many thanks

    • Hi Sal, if you are on a very tight budget you should probably consider other treks. manaslu and tsum valley are restricred ares and therefore permits are around 250 $. in other treks permits are only around 20$. if you are still interested we leave kathmandu on april 13

  4. Hi Emilia. Our trek only begins on April 13, so if you are already in kathmandu you probably want to set out earlier. If you are still interested I can send you more info

    • Yes I’m still intrested! Would be very thankful if you would send me more information!

  5. Ok our trek is for 20 days (including transport), tsum valley and manaslu circuit. total cost of permits is around 250$. guide is 25$ a day (can be shared by all group). Porter is optional . We will take a jeep (130$ each direction), also shared by all passengers.Permits and guide are absolutly required, both manaslu and tsum valley are restricted areas, which is why the cost of permits is relatively high. I have already made contact with an agency, we make the permits on April 12.
