Manaslu Circuit Trek
Manaslu Circuit trekking
We visited Nepal as a first stop on our 6 month honeymoon around the world. In order to be more at ease during our first days in Nepal, we decided to pre-book the first 20 days through Ganesh Trekking (trekking agency of Annemie & Dinesh, the owners of Atithi house). They picked us up at the airport, arranged our first two nights in Kathmandu, organised the 15-day trekking of the Manaslu circuit with one of their guides and welcomed us in Atithi House after the trekking.
Pre-booking: We were very well informed about all aspects of our trip, got some excellent trekking suggestions and even received an example packing list and information page containing useful sentences, etc... On arrival at Kathmandu we were picked up at the airport, our trekking permit was sorted out for us and we got to meet our guide, Manjil, who also helped us to find good sleeping bags to rent during the trek.
The trek: The owner of Ganesh Trekking, Dinesh, very carefully selects which of his guides he sends with which customers and it shows. Teaming us up with guide Manjil & porter Wonchu turned out to be a match made in heaven. After a couple of days we felt more like we were trekking with a group of friends rather than a guide & porter. We spent many afternoons and evenings playing cards and/or talking and loved every second of it. As an extra advantage, Manjil seemed to be able to get us into the best rooms at every place we visited!
