Description

Let me welcome you to Manaslu's newly opened route! Join me on a 21-day trek of the complete circuit of Manaslu, the 8th highest mountain in the world. 

Manaslu (8163 m) was first climbed in 1956 and since then has only been summited by a few westerners. Meaning "mountain of spirit," Manaslu is often regarded as one of the most dangerous 8000 m peaks. But because of its lack of visitors, the remote trails surrounding the mountain are quiet and unspoiled.

In fact, the complete mountain circuit over the Larkya Pass is one of Nepal's best kept secrets. There's an incredible diversity of scenery, including sub-tropical foothills and arid high pasture. The secluded trail also passes through picture-perfect villages and awe-inspiring mountain views.

On this trek, we start in Arughat Bazaar and follow the grand Buri Gandaki River to the Deng village. Along the way, the river valley grows narrower and we'll be able to walk high above the river on scenic paths. Then we'll trek to the north, where the valley opens once again to show lovely alpine meadows and quaint Tibetan-style villages below the north face of the Manaslu mountain. Next, we'll reach the large village of Samagaon and start to head west across the beautiful Larkya La route (5213 m). We'll descend through alpine meadows in Binthang and then join the popular Annapurna circuit route for the last two days of the trip.

This program is suited for a fit and experienced walker, comfortable walking 4-6 hours a day with some longer days. The first half of the trek is at relatively low altitude but there are some steep parts. The Larkya La crossing is over rough glacier moraine and the descent is steep. I will help you acclimatize over the course of the trek. I also provide you with everything you need to camp. My staff includes guides, cook, and porters, so all the camp chores will be taken care of and you only need to carry your own daypack.

The Manaslu circuit trek is a great opportunity to get away from the crowds and enjoy Nepal's remote mountainous landscape. You'll experience a beautiful mix of nature and culture on this trek.

If this sounds like the ideal trek for you, don't hesitate- send me a message now. I'm looking forward to planning our trip together. 

I also lead trips to Everest Base Camp and Ama Dablam.

Mountain Guide

Hi! I'm Jyamchang, IFMGA/NNMGA certified mountain guide. I work together with a team of certified and professional mountain and trekking guides. If I'm not available to guide you, one of my colleagues will take great care of you.

I come from the East part of Nepal, between Makalu (8,470m) and Kangchenjunga (8,586m). I am IFMGA/UIAGM fully certified since 2009.

I have 20+ experience of climbing in the Himalaya. I’ve climbed Mt Everest (7 times), Mt Cho Oyu in Tibet (2 times), Mt Ama Dablam (8 times), Baruntse (2 times), Island peak (15 times), Lobuche (10 times), Pokhalde (10 times), Mera peak (10 times), Mehera peak (5 times), Chulu far east (3 times), Mt Shishapangma until camp 3, Manaslu until 7200m, and Chulu West, Lhakpa ri and other another few more times.

I also have extensive experience of climbing in Europe: France, Italy, UK and Norway (where I work for three months during the summer as a glacier guide).
I'm also a technical mountain rescue coordinator for the 8000's.

It will be my pleasure to guide you through your journey whether for trekking, peak climbing or any mountaineering expedition. Get in touch and let's discuss about the purpose of your trip.

Professional, competent and friendly guide who always takes great care of the clients. We were a group trekking and climbing during 21 days in the Everest region with the company. We were a group of friends who all knew the guide on beforehand, and knew how good he is at his work. We were very pleased with the experience we had. I can recommend the company for everyone who wants a great experience in the Himalayas.
