How Group Departures Work

Group departures are based on 'fixed dates' which are guaranteed to depart with a minimum of two-to-three travelers. Other travelers can then join these dates leading up to the departure, often capped at a maximum of 8- 12 travelers in order to keep the group sizes small and intimate. By joining a group departure, you'll share costs with the rest of the group (leading to a lower trip price) as well as share the experience with other travelers.

What the Price Includes

The group departure prices for the Manaslu Circuit trek include your guide(s), porters, lodging, transport, and permit costs, but exclude meals during the trek.  

Planning Your Trip

When joining one of our fixed departures, please ensure you arrive in Kathmandu at least two days prior to the departure date. This will give you time to settle in, gather last minute supplies, and join the team for the trip briefing prior to the trek. It also gives your local specialist time to apply and receive the necessary permits for the trek.

Trek was incredible our Guide Cheering and Sherpa Norbu were two of the nicest men you could ever of met. Much better prepared than the other guides. We had Ice Axe with us which was essential at times other guides had nothing.
We had many laughs and spent many happy evenings with Cheering and Norbu. Highly Highly recommend Erin and her team.

Really wonderful experience from start to finish. Exceptionally well taken care of by my guide, Sonam and my helper Tarmring. It was culturally magnificent, rewarding and the best in every facet.

Our guide Wangchu and the two porters did a very good job. They made sure everything was taken care off. They were professional and friendly. We’ve been very lucky to have met them!
