Manaslu Circuit Trek in October

  Group of 4 friends visited Nepal in October 2017

“We are a group of 4 friends wanting to trek the Manaslu Circuit in October this year and we are searching for a local guide.
We are arriving in Kathmandu on the 5th October at 2pm and would like to begin the trek on the 6th October if possible. We are looking for a guide and would like a suggested itinerary given your experience.
Our flights leave Kathmandu on the 21st October at 9pm so this leaves us about 15 days to fit a trek in.

We are all Australian and are currently training for this trek (reasonably fit and wanting a challenge).

Would you please tell us:

1. Are you are available for these dates?
2. Suggested itinerary.
3. Costs involved including permits.
4. Transportation included from KTM?
5. Sleeping arrangements each night. Guest houses?


Thank you very much,
Steve.”
