Nepal / Manaslu Circuit Trek

Planning to be there for November,
looking for groups to join for trekking (up to ~3 weeks),
with side trips to see places along the way and/or climb a trekking peak.

Also plan some shorter hikes and cultural-focused tours and activities, possibly biking, and various sightseeing if people want to hang out with another English-speaking westerner..

I am up for pretty much anything 🙂

      Please use this forum page to contact other travellers who havereplied. Tjitse aslo wants to Manaslu Tsum. Let me know if you need guide names i have a couple.

  5. Hello Wayne, I’m going to arrive on Katmandu the 19th of november and begin the annapurna circuit the 20th! (more description on my profil!)
    If you want to join me, please let me know!

    • Hi you will have to talk to others as I changed and will go to Goyko. Plenty more are interested though if you look up the others who have replied to ManasluTsum pages. I know a couple guide names if you need that let me know.

    • Ill be back to KTM about nov27 approximately if you are around then for another trek or trips to sights around KTM or Pokhara (rafting en route to Pokhara sounds fun)
