Just got back from the Manaslu circuit trek and these guys are the best! They operate Most of the trekking in Manaslu Valley and Narphu Valley they told us. They have an excellent native group of Guide team which is a really positive thing.Our guide name is Kendra Gurung he is from epicenter area or earthquake 2014 had awesome English and was super knowledgeable about Manaslu circuit trek regions. He gave us great advice, about social, cultural and especially on what food item. He gave lots of care & attention when it came to staying healthy and our altitude sickness symptoms on us. Our group was 5pax small and we have 3 porters and 1 guide.While doing Manaslu circuit we have encountered with lots of groups some came from samagaun because they could not get access due to heavy snowing. But positive thing our guide tell us it will be okay when we will be there.The lodges that were chosen for us were best in town everywhere because the guide seems familiar everywhere, with local. They weren't made us fell cheapest at each location. This makes a huge difference when you're trekking for days on end. guide himself come us to see in our room every day.The porters they use are absolute heroes (Kami and another young) and helped us guide our way in order to maintain different trekking speeds within the group. I liked Nepali guide and porters they loved to talk and say namaste whenever they encountered us in each bend.Pick these guy for Manaslu Regions - they're an honest & friendly company, and their home was in the way we meet some porters family too, that really make your trip comfortable, safe and memorable.
Had an amazing and adventurous trekking beyond the expectation in Manaslu Region. Manaslu circuit with Explore Manaslu team is wise enough as a trekking operator. Mr, Subash is a real man there, who call us and inform our family member frequent when we are in trekking that is glad that we did the trek with his trekking company. we did Manaslu Base camp trek with him and Pungen Gumba too it was good. our guide arranged a room in Larkya Phedi which is impossible to get. he is from Gorkha so he is well familiar all Manaslu circuit trekking. first, we fell doubt that our previous guide was not there but we had new guide he is enough good for our trek. and we fell secure too. thankyou Mahesh for guiding us in such remote place.
