Manaslu Circuit

This was my 5th trek in Nepal, and probably my most enjoyable. The trek commenced in Soti Khola and concluded at Jagat on the Annapurna road. We were blessed with beautiful weather for the 2 week trek. The scenery along the route was spectacular as we passed through many small villages where people still live largely traditional lives. We encountered friendly Nepalese people and lots of wildlife, including marmots and blue sheep. The walk itself ...

This was my 5th trek in Nepal, and probably my most enjoyable. The trek commenced in Soti Khola and concluded at Jagat on the Annapurna road. We were blessed with beautiful weather for the 2 week trek. The scenery along the route was spectacular as we passed through many small villages where people still live largely traditional lives. We encountered friendly Nepalese people and lots of wildlife, including marmots and blue sheep. The walk itself is challenging, but well within the capabilities of someone who maintains a very good level of physical fitness. The terrain has many up and downs, culminating with the climb up to Larkya La at 5106 metres. This was the first time I had stayed in tea houses, and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Rooms are clean and spacious and there is a comprehensive menu from which to choose. I was lucky in that my 2 trekking companions were an extremely nice couple and very good walkers to boot. We also met up along the route with fellow trekkers from many nations, and with whom we established a great rapport. We had a fantastic Nepalese crew in the Leader; Khadka, Assistant guide: Khampu, Porters: Parbat and Dil. Nothing was too much trouble for the guys. They did everything to ensure that we had both an enjoyable and safe holiday. Thank you to all of them. Thoroughly recommend this trip with The Mountain Company.

This was my 2nd trek with the Mountain Company, having done their Kanchenjunga Trek 12 months previously, and which I loved. I once again found The Mountain Company to be extremely professional and helpful. Their website gives comprehensive information about the trek itself and informative reports from previous treks. My email enquiries to Roland were always answered very promptly, giving loads of helpful information. The organisation at the Kathmandu end was first rate as well. Airport transfers went smoothly, and accommodation and meals at Hotel Tibet were first rate. Thank you to Tulsi and Prashant. Once the trek itself started the Nepalese crew excelled. Nothing was too much trouble. They were friendly and diligent and very patient in doing everything to ensure that we had a fantastic experience in their beautiful country. And they succeeded. Thank you to Khadka, Khampu, Parbat and Dil. I would thoroughly recommend The Mountain Company. They do everything in a professional manner from start to finish, and have a longstanding and well earned reputation for putting trekkers safety above all else. They leave nothing to chance and don't rush or do things by half measure. We had 2 acclimatisation days once we reached altitude. This proved to be extremely beneficial when it came time to tackle the pass. Even though this was a tea house trek, our porters carried 2 tents to cater for any unforeseen emergencies, and even though there were only 3 trekkers and 4 Nepalese crew. As I mentioned above this was probably my most enjoyable trek. A major reason for that can be attributed to the expertise of The Mountain Company at the London and Kathmandu ends, and then of course on the ground during the trek itself.

Awesome combination of landscapes and culture.

I did the Manaslu Circuit, a 13 day trekking holiday through the valleys and high passes of Nepal.

Manaslu Circuit Trek in Nepal with The Mountain Company

Every day of the trek was different with a constant supply of fantastic scenery. We were looked after extremely well by our guide and porters, with plenty of great food and attention to detail. The itinerary was planned to allow optimal acclimatisation, this also allowed time to explore above the highest villages where the Manaslu views were at their most dramatic.

The organisation and advice received before the trek was brilliant with lots of attention to detail and rapid responses to emails. I felt we had the best guide and porters, we seemed to be the only group with a satellite phone and I felt our safety was a high priority. The excellent planning and the way we were looked after on trek made for a fantastic experience where I could just walk and enjoy being in such an amazing place.
