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.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
