Fantastic Manaslu/Tsum Valley Trek

I had never been to Nepal, which was a hole in my outdoor resume. I am a climber, but at 63, decided I'd rather do a trek in Nepal than a climb. I was delighted with my experience and the professionalism of The Mountain Company. I found that, contrary to what I thought before I went on the trip, my experience was at least as much cultural as it was loving being in the mountains. I want to thank The Mountain Company for an excellent holiday.

See above. The Mountain Company ,was exceptionally responsive to my pre-trip inquiries, and its organizational skills during my stay in Nepal were wonderful. Roland met us at the hotel and was available to answer questions and deal with logistics while we were in Kathmandu. I felt well taken care of. On the trek, the head guide, Bishwoo, was well organized, communicated very well and was very attentive to detail. The other guides were also wonderful in their attentiveness.

Manaslu Circuit with Tsum Valley in Nepal

This is a 24 day trip with 19 trekking days. It was an amazing experience with magnificent view of Manaslu and other mountain ranges. Also learned about local culture from trekking through local villages. There were some long days but well worth the effort. The crew was always there to let a hand. I am very slow going down but never was left on my own or rushed as a crew member was always there with me.

Great! Five-stars! The Mountain Company is an amazing tour operator. It provides timely response to questions, listen to feedback from clients and the crew. Implement changes if and when required to improve the experiences of its clients. Environmental friendly by participating in cleaning up the trails and promote environmental friendly practices. Ensure ethical treatment of crew by providing them with the necessary equipment and ensure they do not carry excess weight.

Enchanting Himalayan Tsum valley and the dramatic Manaslu trek

A 21d trekking trip in the Himalaya preceded by a day sightseeing in Kathmandu where we managed to visit most of the major sights. The needs of the differently paced trekkers were taken into account with plenty of time to rest and soak in the scenery. This trip was essentially two treks - one along the enchanting Tsum valley staying in Mu Gompa monastery at the head of the valley and then trekking back down the valley to re-join the popular ...

A 21d trekking trip in the Himalaya preceded by a day sightseeing in Kathmandu where we managed to visit most of the major sights. The needs of the differently paced trekkers were taken into account with plenty of time to rest and soak in the scenery. This trip was essentially two treks - one along the enchanting Tsum valley staying in Mu Gompa monastery at the head of the valley and then trekking back down the valley to re-join the popular Manaslu trek. There were days of heavier exertion on both treks through forests and dipping down to rivers as we got ever closer to some very big mountains including Manaslu, the eight highest mountain in the world. A comfortable night's sleep could be obtained at all the teahouses along the way after a filling meal. The highest point was the Larkya La pass at 5135 metres tackled after an early start and where we were lucky enough to be able to soak up the sunshine before the steep descent.. On the last part of our Manaslu trek we met the waves of trekkers walking in the opposite direction on the Annapurna circuit.

Roland Hunter at the Mountain Company answered all my questions in a phone call and I was able to book both the trip and flights around a month before the start of the trip. The trekking team was very well organised and there was a good team spirit with attention to the individual needs of each trekker. We never felt rushed and despite the physical exertion integral to a trek of this kind the word relaxing could be used in connection with it. On some days we collected rubbish from the trail and delivered framed posters to the hotels about Going Green. The team had two satellite phones if difficulties occurred and a two very well stocked medical bags. I have no hesitation in recommending the Mountain Company - others in the trek group had used them before - and would choose them again if I have the opportunity to visit the Himalaya again in the future.

Incredible Trekking Experience

3 weeks spent trekking the remote Tsum Valley then the Manaslu Circuit. The views were spectacular every single day. The trekking was tough but incredibly rewarding and it is certainly an experience we will remember for a lifetime.
