  1. I Hen,
    My name is Yanai, also from Israel, 35 years old. I also plan trekking Manaslu circuit and Tsum valey, but I plan to start heading to Arughat on September 17/18th (I will land at Kathmandu on September 16th). Is it too late for you? How flexible are you with the departure date?

    My planned itinerary (flexible) for this trek (altitudes and distances are roughly measured via Google Earth):
    Day 0: Take transport from Kathmandu to Arughat Bazar
    Day 1: Arughat Bazar (540m) –> Labubesi (800m), 18Km
    Day 2: Labubesi (800m) –> Jagat (1320m), 21.5Km
    Day 3: Jagat (1320m) –> Ripche (2400m), 20Km
    Day 4: Ripche (2400m) –> Chhule (3320m), 17Km
    Day 5: Chhule (3320m) –> Mu Gompa (3650), 5.5Km
    Day 6: Mu Gompa (3650) –> Chekkumparo (3050m), 14Km
    Day 7: [Optional] Hiking to Gumba Lungdang
    Day 8: [Optional] Hiking to Ganesh Himel base-camp
    Day 9: Chekkumparo (3050m)–> Lopka (2000m), 15Km
    Day 10: Lopka (2000m) –> Namrung (2600m), 21.5Km
    Day 11: Namrung (2600m) –> Samagaon (3500m), 14Km
    Day 12: Samagaon (3500m) –> Samdo (3850m), 8Km
    Day 13: Samdo (3850m) –> Dharmasala (4500m), 5Km
    Day 14: Dharmasala (4500m) –> Bimtang (3700m), 14.5Km
    Day 15: Bimtang (3700m) –> Dharapani (1900m), 19Km
    Day 16: Dharapani (1900m) –> Bahundanda (1250m), 24Km
    Day 17: Bahundanda (1250m) –> Besisahar (800m), 16Km
    Day 18: Take transport from Besisahar back to Kathmandu

    I will be happy to join you if it works for you.

    Thanks,
    Yanai
