Description

Definitely one of the most impressive mountains in the Himalayas of Nepal, Manaslu (8,156m) is an absolute wonder.

Throughout this 17 day trekking adventure, I would like to guide you through the beautiful area where Manaslu and other spectacular peaks stand tall. A few examples of the other great mountains you will be able to see during this trip include Himalchuli (7,893m) and Nagdi Chuli (7,879m).

More than the mountains, this trek will allow you to immerse yourself in the fascinating and wonderful culture of the local people. The population of the area are predominantly Gurung, a wonderful group of people who are direct descendants of Tibetan immigration. We will be stopping in different places every day of this trip. Thus giving you a great opportunity to explore somewhere new. Some of the places we will be stopping include Jagat, Deng, Ghap, Sama Goun, Samdo, Dharapani and many more. You will also get to spend a few days exploring the city and valley of Kathmandu.

Over the course of the trek, we will be venturing progressively higher and higher, but there will be rest days. Hence giving you a chance to get properly acclimatized. However, we will be hiking from 4 to 8 hours per day. As a result, participants should be in good physical condition.

The area around Manaslu is mesmerizing. From the mammoth peaks looming above, to the lovely people you will get to meet, to the sensational landscape you will see during the hikes, this will be a trip you will never forget. So send me a request and let me guide you on a great adventure.

I also lead an 18 day trek that will take you from Kathmandu to Lukla to Everest base camp to Gokyo and back.
